It is so much fun when you are watching your favorite movies or TV shows with your friends or family. The thrill of reacting to different scenes at the same time while sharing food can create memories. But, if miles away sets you apart, Amazon Prime Video has a solution for you.

Instead of waiting for the time to meet up with your friends and watch movies together, you can use and set up a Watch Party instantly right at the comforts of your homes.

How Does Amazon Prime Video Watch Party Work

The Amazon Prime Video Watch party is available to all users who have an Amazon Prime membership. You can select from thousands of movies and TV shows for co-viewing streaming, including Amazon Originals. For you to start an Amazon Prime Video Watch Party, everyone must decide on what title to watch. Then, each participant should buy or rent the title whenever necessary.

You can stream a Watch Party video on any supported device. The Amazon Prime Video Watch party is available on Amazon Fire TV or Firestick devices and the Prime Video app launched on Android phones and iOS mobile devices. You can also start a Watch Party on desktop computer web browsers except for Safari and Internet Explorer.

Unfortunately, you cannot add anyone who is not a Prime member to the watch-together party participants. Also, you cannot start or join Watch Parties to watch movies or TV series if your Amazon account is from another country.
