Disney+ Now Supports Apple’s SharePlay on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV
The latest app to support Apple’s SharePlay feature on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV is Disney+.
Disney made the announcement on Wednesday, noting the SharePlay experience for Disney+ is now available globally across its entire content catalogue.
SharePlay allows Apple users to have shared experiences via FaceTime. So Disney+ subscribers can watch synced content together while on a FaceTime call.
“We’re very excited to launch SharePlay on Disney+ for Apple users in time for the holidays and ahead of several highly-anticipated premieres,” said Jerrell Jimerson, EVP of Product & Design, Disney Streaming, in a statement. “With thousands of movies and shows and a growing content catalog of new titles and originals, SharePlay provides another opportunity for personal friends and family around the world to come together and create new memories with their favorite stories on Disney+.”
SharePlay can support up to 32 people on one session, like FaceTime. SharePlay with Disney+ can be viewed on an Apple TV, while a FaceTime call takes place on an iPhone or iPad.
To use SharePlay on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, you’ll need to be a Disney+ subscriber and have devices running tvOS 15.1, iOS 15.1 or iPadOS 15.1 or later in order to use the feature.
Disney says its GroupWatch in-app co-viewing feature will remain available globally to subscribers in the same country on compatible devices and operating systems.
