It is very obvious that Facebook has barely optimized the Watch party, and just lately the social media platforms want to approve a new streaming experience
Beyond just watching online videos with your friends, Facebook is planning to add another user experience to the existing platform– the social media company will soon help with TV-shows, especially the School event for students as informed by a reliable source.
Facebook wants is working on a new Party experience that will let you host live TV shows, starting with sports. Start a party and you can cheer in chat, create polls and offer trivia questions based on player stats. It’s not going to compare to gathering around the couch, but it should deliver more of a thrill than everyday group discussions.
While the upcoming feature is still in the beta form, it is undergoing series of tests across the globe, as the company is testing the feature in Facebook Groups during certain sports events, including UEFA Champions League matches. Using the Watch Party has always made me think there is more to the feature than just watching videos with friends, and seeing the company suggesting a live stream experience give me a benefit of doubt.
In addition to what has been said, the platform is also adding an option for music lovers. If you attach a song to your profile, you can give visitors an option to listen to the full song on Spotify (see below). More music partners will be available in the “near future,” according to Facebook, so you might not be out of luck if you or your friends prefer other services.
It may seem unusual for Facebook to enable Watch Party for videos that aren’t even online, but this appears to be more about capturing your attention than making money. If you stay in a Facebook space while you’re watching the big game, you might be more likely to stay on the service for after-match discussions.
