“Facebook” launches the technology for watching videos together – technology – a smart world


Facebook announced today that its users will now be able to watch videos with their friends over the Internet using Messenger for messaging, allowing them to see their instant reactions..

The “Watch Together” feature will allow the user to add up to eight people via a video call, and up to 50 people through the (Messenger Rooms) tool to communicate via CCTV..

The company launched the tool in July, as it looks to withdraw the rug from the Zoom video communication app, which has become a household name after the surge in demand for using that platform due to the Coronavirus pandemic..

Facebook joins the companies scrambling to dominate the “stay at home” market as millions turn to online platforms for work, social life and study communication amid health concerns from the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Facebook” aims to “find a new way to experience watching a group movie,” after months of social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Olivia Grace, head of Messenger sales, told AFP..

Users can, during a phone call among themselves, decide to watch any kind of programs and movies available on Facebook Watch, so that a picture of what they decided to watch appears on the screen, along with pictures of the members of the participating group, which allows each of them to see the reactions of others simultaneously..

This option will be possible during conversations in which a maximum of eight people can participate, or through “Messenger rooms” chat rooms in which a larger number of participants up to fifty may be present..

The use of video communication technology increased significantly during the health crisis associated with the Coronavirus, and video conferencing was popular for work or social purposes..

And “Facebook”, in a statement, that “more than 150 million video calls are made through Messenger every day, while more than 200 million video clips are sent through it.”

The social media giant took the initiative to add several jobs in this field during the quarantine phase, including “Messenger Rooms”.
