Sharing YouTube videos is very simple, and there are several ways to do it; such as, posting the link of a video on Facebook or Google+, sharing it in Tweeter, and many other ways. But what if you wanted to watch YouTube videos with your friends as if they were in the same place ?
Watch2gether is a web service that makes the experience of sharing YouTube videos with friends more interesting and fun , allowing you to create private sessions to watch it, instead of sending video links. In these sessions you can invite as many friends as you want ; playing the live video and in case someone pause or switch to another video, it will be paused or changed for the rest of the people within that session. In addition, the service has an integrated chat so that it is possible to chat and share impressions with others while watching the video .
To use the service you must create a session, entering a name on the main page and clicking the ‘Go’ button. Once in the session, you can search YouTube videos directly or paste the link of one that you have opened. To invite friends to the session, you can share the link provided in the upper right corner of the screen or using the Facebook ‘Send’ button next to that link.
This service is a tool that can be very useful and interesting in a variety of possible scenarios. For example, to watch instructional videos in groups, listen to the same songs or videos at the same time with a friend, and even to watch movies among several people, among others.
