Whatever you may be watching, a music video, a sports highlight or a Facebook Watch original, the feature allows you to see the reaction of your friends at the same time.
"Watch Together" has been in development since Facebook announced plans to develop a co-viewing experience two years ago. In other words, don't try to use Facebook to stream audio in a way that effectively mimics the role of services like Spotify and Apple Music, or even YouTube.
NME writes, "The conditions will continue to apply instead to Facebook users including music in videos and livestreams to which they do not own the copyright". At a time when a global pandemic is forcing millions to stay home, a feature like Watch Together is another way to connect with friends and family without actually being in the same room.

You can then select a video from multiple categories, or search for the specific video you'd like to view. For example, a group could get together to watch a fitness video and work out together. Currently, on a daily basis, Messenger users make more than 150 million video calls in the app and send more than 200 videos.
Users will not be able to create playlists or queue videos but all participants can choose videos. All you need to do is launch the Messenger app and start a video call.
