Apple Announces New Feature Compatible With Disney+

Yesterday, Apple held their World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) and announced iOS 15, iPad OS, a new version of MacOS and more.

One of the new features that was showcased was SharePlay, a new feature that will allow sharing streaming content on FaceTime calls across Apple’s entire ecosystem.

SharePlay which includes music, movies, and TV shows, “while having a rich, real-time connection with your friends,” according to Apple. Users can also share their screens and bring apps into their calls. And this includes several major streaming services

  • Disney+
  • Hulu
  • HBO Max
  • Paramount+
  • Twitch
  • TikTok
  • Pluto TV
  • Master Class
  • The NBA App

“We’re incredibly excited to participate as a developer on SharePlay to enable innovative viewing experiences across Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for our Apple users,” said Jerrell Jimerson, EVP of Product & Design, Disney Streaming. “This will give friends and family another way to come together to share the incredible stories that we deliver through our content, including bringing a live sports co-viewing experience to ESPN+ for the first time.”

The new Apple feature is somewhat similar to GroupWatch, a feature that is already available which allows Disney+ subscribers to watch content together in two different locations.

SharePlay will expand this idea and allow you to see the person your watching Disney+ with it over FaceTime. SharePlay will include features to pause, rewind etc just like GroupWatch On Disney+.
