There is also a built-in chat function. Since the onset of the pandemic, Amazon Prime Video has become popular in the country thanks to its OTT versions in regional languages. The video streaming platform is against Netflix, which currently provides a free 48-hour service. 

Priced at Rs 129 per month and Rs 999 for a year, the Amazon Prime subscription comes with faster Prime shipping, Amazon Prime Music, and Amazon Prime Video at no additional cost.

How to avail the Watch Party feature on Amazon Prime Video

Before we talk about anything else, it should be noted that the Watch Party feature on Amazon Prime Video is limited to desktop computers only. Available at no additional cost, any Amazon Prime Video user can create a party by going to their favorite movie or TV show. Once created, you can copy Watch Party or share it directly from the Prime Video website.

The person who creates the party will be called the host, while the others will be called the attendees. All attendees who join a viewing party must have an active Amazon Prime Video membership. 

The host will have full access to the party and attendees can simply watch and chat with the host and other attendees. Amazon Prime Video nearly 100 attendees can participate and supports up to 100 persons to join in a single Watch Party, which is impressive.

The announcement of the new Amazon Prime Video feature comes at a time when Netflix is ​​offering 48 hours of free streaming to all users in the country as part of its '

StreamFest 2020'. Netflix faced a major problem when hosting StreamFest 2020 on December 5th & 6. The number of users exceeded the company's expectations and it was forced to stop the campaign for a short time saying StreamFest 2020 is full. Netflix has extended StreamFest 2020 in India until December 9, ensuring that all required users will have free access to the service for 48 hours.
