Facebook Messenger adds Watch Together to let you watch videos with friends

The latest app to add joint video viewing is Facebook Messenger. The company announced "Watch Together" today, a new feature inside the messaging app that lets you view videos from Facebook Watch while also seeing live video of your friends. It’s rolling out in the whole world starting today on iOS and Android.

If you like to use this feature, swipe up during a video call or Messenger Room and tap the Watch Together option. Facebook will recommend videos for you to view then watch, or you can browse categories or search for a specific video. You can watch with eight people on a Messenger video call or up to 50 people in a Messenger Room.
