According tomedia reports, Twitch announced today (September 2, local time) that Watch Parties is now open to all creators from around the world. The feature was originally released in beta in the United States earlier this year. With the popularity of Watch Parties, it will allow more creators to watch and broadcast Amazon Prime video movies and programs to audiences with Prime members.
Creators can also use their webcams to hear and see how they react to movies they watch together, which appears on the chat bar in picture-in-picture form.
For programs available through Prime or Prime Video subscriptions in a region, viewers in that region will be able to join Watch Parties and even show their support for the show through Bits and Subs. To start a Watch Party, simply add Watch Party Quick Action to the streaming manager and Watch Parties to connect to your Prime or Prime Video account. Then choose the movie or TV show you want to watch with your fans and stream it live on your webcam and microphone. Twitch said it will also try to bring support for Watch Parties to mobile devices in the coming months.
