Break out the popcorn and call your friends on Messenger. Today, we’re announcing that Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Warner Bros. are bringing new content to our recently launched Watch Together feature which allows people to view videos, movies, television shows and other content at the same time in a Messenger video call or in Messenger Rooms.
Now people can tune in together, even if they’re not, and check out features like Fruitvale Station, Hairspray, and Reservoir Dogs, just to name a few, with hits like Madea’s Family Reunion, and Karate Kid coming soon. Or, maybe binge watch a season of Community or Dawson’s Creek with your besties. And with Halloween coming up, get into the spooky spirit with selections like The Blair Witch Project, The Descent or The Grudge 2.
Messenger’s Watch Together makes spending time with friends and loved ones feel as close to an in-person experience as possible, and it’s easy to use. Simply start a Messenger video call or create a Messenger Room then swipe up to access the menu and select Watch Together. From there you can select all the content Facebook Watch has to offer, which includes different categories like ‘TV & Movies.’
We’re thrilled to be working with Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Warner Bros. to bring dozens of awesome new titles to the Watch Together experience. Check it out today!
