Let us have an option to have watch parties with ads (commercials) so that non prime viewers can also join in.
The Ad money can go to amazon in exchange for letting non prime viewers join the watch party. They would be essentially paying amazon for a a very specific viewing. I hate the idea that I have to exclude non prime viewers in order to do a watch party.

Thanks for the suggestion. At this time, Ads are not supported in Watch Parties. We will let you know if this is added to our roadmap
An idea is that the video will pause and then the non prime users will be delayed on watching the rest based on how long the ad is. They will end up behind everyone else as another incentive to get prime video.
