FaceTimers and Disney fans, rejoice — you can now watch anything on Disney+ with friends using SharePlay.
SharePlay is Apple’s screen-sharing feature for FaceTime, introduced with iOS 15.1. Activating SharePlay — which you do simply by opening the compatible app and starting to view content while on FaceTime — will display and synch playback controls for whatever you’re watching on everyone’s screen on the call. But don’t think you can use SharePlay as a workaround for free streaming. Everyone on a FaceTime call must have their own Disney+ account in order to use the feature, as the content will be streaming directly from the app itself on each device.
