Disney Plus app now supports SharePlay
Disney Plus doesn’t have its macOS app yet.
Disney announced its newest update for the Disney Plus app that carries support for SharePlay across Apple devices.
Users now have the privilege to stream Disney Plus content with their friends and families in sync, giving the sensation of a home theatre amid holidays. According to Disney, SharePlay has been made available across the globe for the entire Disney Plus catalog.
As of now, a SharePlay session is capable of including up to 32 participants in total, who after joining a FaceTime call can start the SharePlay session by navigating to the Disney Plus app. Each of the participants will have the option to choose their captions and subtitles. Also, there are options for them to have shared playback controls like play, pause, forward, and rewind.
The feature requires the latest version of the app, which is expected to roll out in the App Store for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Although SharePlay is available for Mac, Disney Plus doesn’t have its macOS app.
