Allow non prime members to use Watch Parties
It is a great idea but a failed launch. It kicks people out of the watch party, and leaves a silent window with just you in their with the watch party. Unless you have a good scene, it can be embarrassing and low grade quality to not allow others to be in the party.
I stopped the film because I lost all of my viewers after I switched over to Watch Parties from a "just chatting" while I was gathering a crowd to watch the show. However, this app forces people to sign up for Prime, or start a trial. Not everyone is okay with this.
Thanks for your feedback. We will keep it in mind as we plan our upcoming releases.
I completely agree. Twitch has always been a free platform. Not needing to spend any money to enjoy and view your favorite streamers and hang out and interact with your favorite streamers and community. But with this, not only are you telling people they may have to pay to interact with their favorite communities, they not even supporting the streamer. I feel like you should make it so streamers need prime in order to make a watch party, but viewers don't need prime in order to enjoy it with them. But if they sign up for prime through their stream, they get a commission for it; even if it's small.
