Amazon’s streaming video platform offers better content every time, making it one of the most used in Spain (and many good things are yet to come, such as a Lord of the Rings series). But, in addition, it has some functions that make it stand out from others like Netflix. An example is group video. We tell you what this option is about Prime Video.
This tool is designed to be able to enjoy content in a very Social since it allows people who are in different places to enjoy movies or series at the same time. There is even a private chat for guests where they can comment on what they think. Therefore, we are talking about an ideal option for when the whole family is not together or, simply, you want to watch something with a group of friends.
Obviously, each one must have their own access to Prime Video and, in addition, you will not notice any delay or slowness in what you play. In other words, everything works just as well as always and access to content is unlimited as usual. In addition, there is something that must be taken into account -and that is very positive-: the use is tremendously easysomething that we will explain later.
What devices is Group Video available on?
Well, luckily it is already possible to use this function in all the developments that exist to see the contents of Prime Video. This is because with a new update Those that were missing have been added: clients for Smart TV and, in addition, in the applications that exist for Xbox and PlayStation. Thus, there is no option that does not allow the use of Group Video (before it was an option in apps for mobile devices, Fire TV and even for the own software for computers).
How this Prime Video option works that doesn’t have Netflix
Well, it’s not complicated at all, and it is possible to invite a maximum of 100 users that they can watch at the same time, and in a synchronized way, movies and series. By the way, you must be clear that the one who creates the Group Video is the one who has control of everything. That is, he can stop or advance or rewind what is being viewed.
The fact is that once you are inside the chosen Prime Video application, you must go to the movie or series that you want to watch in a group and, in the event that the option we are talking about is available, in the lower area of the screen you will see a link called Group Video. Use it regularly. You will see on the right side of the screen a window in which you will make the chat it opens
Now use Create Group Video in the area on the right and a link which is the one you owe to share with the other people with whom you want to enjoy the content at the same time. Once this is done, you will see that each one is arriving at the one that uses the link that you have passed and, when they are all there, simply start with the reproduction in the traditional way.
An excellent possibility that, apart from being simple, has a great potential so that you go or not with friends on vacation you can watch that series that I have you like while keeping in touch.
