How to use Shareplay on iOS 15?
Here is how to use Shareplay on iOS 15 compatible devices like iPhone 13, Mini, Pro and Pro Max.
With iOS 15, Facetime receives new functions called Shareplay that allow media and the screen to be shared, for example. The SharePlay function, which allows you to synchronize the playback of a movie or TV series with your friends on FaceTime, is one of the best features of iOS 15. Let us find out how to use Shareplay on iOS 15 in detail below.
What is SharePlay?
The SharePlay feature allows you to listen to songs from Apple Music, watch a TV series, or enables you to share your screen to view apps together via FaceTime. The feature will be available on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. It makes the same playback controls available to everyone, so that any one of the participants can pause, start or even skip to the next content.
How to use Shareplay on iOS 15 devices?
Follow the steps given below to use Shareplay in FaceTime on iOS 15 devices.
- To use Shareplay on your supported iPhone and iPad devices, you need to ensure that everyone or all the participants on the call is on the iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 operating system.
- After that, you will have to exit out of the FaceTime call (which will allow you to switch to a picture-in-picture window) and open a Shareplay-compatible app (like Apple Music, Disney+, etc, for an example).
- Now, you simply need to select and play any content that you want, whether it is a movie or a TV series, and it will play for everyone.
- You can also control the Shareplay stream to play, pause and skip the content if you would like. All the participants in Shareplay will be automatically kept up to date.
What Apps Does It Work On?
The Shareplay feature not only works within the Apple environment, but also on many other apps, some of which do not require subscriptions. The full list currently includes:
- ESPN +
- HBO Max
- Pluto TV
In the future, many other services will follow and SharePlay will be integrated into their apps. This way it will create new ways to interact and stay in touch with friends and family.
