Facebook expands “Watch Parties” to all users

Facebook is expanding its Watch Parties feature to all pages and profiles around the world.

The feature, launched earlier this year, lets members watch videos at the same time while continuing to comment and interact.

The company wrote in a blog post today that there have been more than 12 million Watch Parties in Groups since it launched in January.

It claims that these events encourage active participation with eight times as many comments than non-live videos in Groups.

Tech site, The Verge says Watch Parties are also getting a few new features, including threaded comments so people can have conversations, as well as live commentating, which gives hosts the ability to go live and comment aloud as a video plays.

Users can also now schedule a Watch Party ahead of time.
