It was at the end of 2020 when Amazon enabled the “Group Video” function on the Prime Video platform. A service with no cost added to the Amazon Prime subscription that allows the creation of a kind of chat to share impressions and curiosities while we are viewing content on the platform.
Group video is an option available only in movies, series or any content that supports it And it can largely remind you of chatting on a YouTube live. With a cap of up to 100 participants, so you can start a group video session on Prime Video.
How to create a group video session
The first thing to keep in mind is that “Group Video” is a functionality only accessible from the web browser, something logical to a certain extent if we think that it is a chat and you have to pull a keyboard to write comfortably.
From that point on, you have to search the service catalog for content that is compatible with “Group Video”. For the tests I have used “American Gods”, a series joined by successful productions such as “Fleabag”, “The Boys”, “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan”, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, “HANNA”, “Hunters” …
Once we have found in content, at the bottom of each episode We will see the section “Group video” on which we must press. At that moment a new screen opens in which we are going to create a session and where we must indicate what name we want to have in the chat.
With the generated name, the content appears and on the right a configuration window in which the link that we can share is indicated and the chat in the other tab. A section in which the host can play, pause and jump for the group, as well as close the group session.
In order to take advantage of this improvement, all participants must be Prime Video users and the host will be the one who will have control of the group at all times.
