ZOOM, HOUSE PARTY &SKYPE
So are you in search of some hassle-free streaming solution? We recommend planning a watch party through a video chat platform like Skype, Zoom, or a Houseparty. In this way, everyone can discuss a movie, and then all you have to do is press play and enjoy your movie time with minimal tech tools.
Moreover, to use Skype and Zoom, you only have to create an account and start a meeting. This will form a link that can be sent to your family and friends. At the same time, Houseparty enables users to engage in further activities such as games during video calls. All you have to do is close the group to the public as soon as everyone has joined the ‘room,’ or else any stranger can quickly enter your movie marathon.
