Facebook’s Watch Party feature was an interesting addition to the platform. It was not only a good way to share funny video content with your network but a good way for business pages to further improve their engagement.
During the pandemic, the feature was used a lot by individuals and pages as events shifted to virtual formats. However, in the social media giant’s books the Watch Party feature has run its course.
The users have been informed via an email that the Watch Party feature that was launched in November 2018, will no longer be available from 16 April, 2021.
Due to this update not only will no one be able to create Watch Parities, either as an individual profile or a business one but the old ones will also be no longer available. Anyone who wants to save them have till the cut-off date in April to download them.
The Facebook Help Center has given step wise details of how you can go about downloading your existing Watch Party videos.
So far there are no details as to why the feature is being pulled out, or if there is going to be a replacement feature that will allow similar group watching experience.
