Product Feature - Shareplay

June 14, 2021

Innovation is one of the keys to success in the new digital world. While content may reign king, having the foresight to create entirely new experiences and to experiment in this ever-changing marketplace is a key way to grow your brand. At Simplestream we offer best in class features and functionality for your customers, and we are constantly keeping one eye ahead on the new features to add to our roadmap that will keep your viewers and customers engaged.

During this global pandemic, technology has taken the forefront by keeping people entertained, informed and in a safe environment, but it can never really replace the connections you have with people in the real world, such as being sat in a cinema or around the TV screen with your family. This is where SharePlay can deliver a truly unique experience which can’t be found on any other distribution platform.

Shareplay allows users to watch content together from anywhere in the world, by combining the experience with a video call, users can finally feel like they’re sat down with their loved ones sharing the experience once more. SharePlay works across iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and with shared playback controls, anyone in a SharePlay session can play, pause, or jump ahead. SharePlay even extends to Apple TV, so users can watch shows or movies on a big screen while connecting over FaceTime, with everyone’s playback in sync.

This is the type of revolutionary feature that gets consumers talking about their personal experiences with your service and helps to drive growth as well as obvious satisfaction from having had that experience.
