Facebook Live is introducing a new feature called Watch Party that allows all your pals in a Facebook group to stream clips together—from dog videos to Jada Pinkett Smith’s new show—and interact while they’re doing it.
Sure, it’s nice to hang out with people IRL, but this feature is presumably good for faraway friends or those days when you don’t want to leave the house. According to CNN, anyone in a Facebook group can launch a Watch Party and become a host, with the ability to designate co-hosts. Hosts can control the playlist of videos and the playback. Meanwhile, anyone in the group can give suggestions for videos, ask questions, and leave comments or reactions. Whenever someone is starting a party, Facebook alerts all the members in the group.

This is what Netflix should have! Be able to create a lil lobby on Netflix n invite 3 of your friends who must also have Netflix to join the movie as you host it.
Would be a good idea especially on Console
Facebook still a thing?
I haven't logged into Facebook in over 2 months. It adds no benefit to my life.
