Amazon is expanding Prime Video’s Watch Party feature to more devices, including Samsung’s smart TVs. The feature, which lets multiple people watch videos simultaneously, debuted during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it was limited to desktop web browsers, Fire TV devices, and mobile apps.

Now, the Watch Party feature is being expanded to smart TVs from various brands, Roku devices, and gaming consoles (PlayStation and Xbox). If you own a compatible smart TV from Samsung, you can now start using the new feature with your friends and family members. It also lets you chat while watching. Of course, other people must be signed up for the video streaming service. The feature doesn’t work with live video feeds such as news and sports events.

You can click on the Watch Party icon in the options within videos. Once you choose this option, you will get a link that you can share with others. As soon as anyone with a Prime Video subscription clicks on the link, they can start watching the video with you.

The feature is available only in the US, though, and is limited to 100 viewers. So, if you are in any other country, you won’t be able to use Prime Video’s Watch Party feature. Amazon is not the only video streaming service that has launched social watching. HBO and Hulu also have similar features.
