How to watch YouTube videos together with your friends using Discord?
Watch Together feature of Discord is now available on a few servers on the platform, but we are almost sure that it will reach everyone soon. This new test comes weeks after two popular music bots getting banned on the platform following complaints from YouTube.
The feature is quite similar to the screen sharing feature, where users will find the corresponding button along with the video options.
Users will be able to create a playlist of videos to watch collectively and synchronized with their friends, where it will even be possible to share the playback control authorization among the participants.
While the feature is different from what was offered by the music bots, this integration will again allow, among other things, users to listen to music together.
In this regard, users may encounter advertisements when watching videos. This could make it possible for YouTube to obtain a new revenue stream, although the truth is that none of the companies involved, both Google and Discord, have come to offer comments on this new feature.
This feature should be available to all users of the platform by the end of next October.
