Watch party functionality has been rolling out across streaming services during the pandemic, and it's finally landed on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
With everyone stuck at home and looking for alternative ways to spend time together, streaming platforms have had to adapt, with Disney Plus introducing GroupWatch last month.
Amazon Prime Video actually launched its Watch Party feature over the summer, but it was limited to US customers – and now it's finally made the jump across the pond.

If you're raring to get stuck into the new Watch Party (opens in new tab) feature, you and your group of fellow viewers will all need to be Amazon Prime members, and if that box is ticked, up to 100 of you can congregate online to watch a series or film together.
There's no extra cost, but it is limited to the Prime Video desktop experience, so you can't participate via the app.
Everyone's viewing experience is controlled by the host, who's in charge of the remote essentially, which is a big responsibility/ honor/ curse.
Here's how to start a Watch Party:
