FACEBOOK WATCH PARTIES — Now available to people, pages and groups with new features!

Facebook

Facebook Watch Parties enables people, creators, and publishers to watch, discuss and react to playlists of videos together in real time, in a shared space.

There have been more than 12 million watch parties in groups since Facebook launched Watch Party to all groups in July, and they are getting engagement — eight times as many comments than non-live videos.

Today Facebook launched Watch Party to all Pages and people on Facebook and a few new features to help make the Watch Party experience more seamless:

  • Ability for Pages and Groups to schedule a Watch Party
  • Adding threaded comments
  • Live Commentating rolling out now which lets a host go Live within a Watch Party to share commentary as videos play

Now people can start Watch Parties with friends directly from a video they’re enjoying or from their Timeline.
