Disney+ now supports Apple SharePlay

Streaming service Disney+ has updated its app to include support for Apple’s SharePlay feature.

The move means that Disney+ subscribers with an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV will have another way to come together with personal friends and family by viewing Disney+ content completely in sync while on a FaceTime call, according to Disney.

The Disney+ SharePlay experience is available globally across the entire Disney+ content catalogue including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, including new titles like Marvel Studios’ HawkeyeWelcome to Earth, and upcoming Disney+ premieres like Encanto and The Book of Boba Fett.

SharePlay sessions can host up to 32 people and offer each participant in the FaceTime call the flexibility of choosing audio and subtitles in the language of their choice. Viewers who prefer a bigger screen can also enjoy the synchronized content on their Apple TV while still sharing the moment with personal friends and family over FaceTime through their iPhone or iPad.

“We’re very excited to launch SharePlay on Disney+ for Apple users in time for the holidays and ahead of several highly-anticipated premieres. With thousands of movies and shows and a growing content catalog of new titles and originals, SharePlay provides another opportunity for personal friends and family around the world to come together and create new memories with their favourite stories on Disney+,” said Jerrell Jimerson, EVP of product and design, Disney Streaming.
