How to use GroupWatch on Disney +
Like Netflix Party, Disney + GroupWatch, which is now live in the UK, is designed to create a movie or television in different homes.
Up to seven Disney + subscribers can watch a movie or show along with synchronized playback.
while there’s no built-in chat feature like the Netflix version yet, sad, Disney has added the ability to post six emoji reactions, via the mobile app, while you watch.
Actual invitations to a GroupWatch must also be made via the app or the web.
Click the icon (three people) on the playback screen when you have decided what you are watching to send the link via text message or email.
Once ordered, it will work on any smart TV and streaming device that is Disney + compatible. And any participant can pause, rewind, or fast-forward the movie. Child profiles cannot start or join a GroupWatch.
How to watch Disney+ on iPhone and iPad
You can watch Disney+ on any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad running iOS or iPadOS 11.0 or later. That takes you from the iPhone 12 series right back to the iPhone 5s and iPhone SE on the smartphone side – so that means any iPhone released since 2013 – and back to the fifth-gen iPad and iPad Mini 2.
That’s a stricter range of devices varying from 2013 to 2017 iPad models at the earliest. For the iPod Touch, you need the sixth-gen model from 2015. Got a compatible Apple device? Just download the app from the App Store.
