  1. Allow streamer to pause the video for everyone. Especially useful for Movies so you have have a break to go to the bathroom/stretch.

    Thanks for reaching out with your suggestion. We’re currently investigating all kinds of different content controls, including the ability to pause a Watch Party

  2. So in watch parties whenever you are watching an episode towards the end you have to end the watch party and pretty much start a new one to move on to the next episode. Would be nice if it had some type of auto-play next episode or allow the streamer to select the next episode in a drop box or menu without exiting out of watch party.

    Thanks for the suggestion! This is another feature we’re investigating in order to make it easier for you to seamlessly host your Watch Parties. Our team is currently discussing auto-play, along with several other content controls.

  3. Anime fans and streamers have long been waiting for the day when a streaming platform allowed this to happen, and seeing how the current partnership with Amazon with Watch Parties is doing, it might not be so far fetched after all. It would be extremely cool, if you one day partnered with Crunchyroll or Funimation for Watch Parties! It would be the coolest thing ever, especially with everyone staying home due to the Covid-19 epidemic! Imagine the viewing experience! Anime nights would finally be possible!

    Thanks for reaching out! We’ve recently made the entire Prime Video catalog available in Watch Parties, which includes thousands of movies and television shows (including lots of anime).

    We are also looking into partnering with other content providers to add even more content to Watch Parties.

  4. While streaming last night, my stream lost connection and had to restart it about 10 mins later. I wasn't able to resume the movie where I had left off so having a scroll bar/jog bar or even chapters would greatly help in the event of lost connections as it stinks having to restart a movie/show from the very beginning due to something that can't be controlled.

    Thanks for reaching out, and apologies for the frustration. There are lots of different content controls that we’re investigating for our future roadmap, and we will add this one to the list!

  5. When watching a TV Series (such as Made in Abyss), it would be nice to have a "Start next episode" button somewhere, possibly when the credits start to roll. The current process for playing the next episode is as follows:

    1. Go back to the Creator's Dashboard
    2. End/Cancel the current watch party (or wait for it to end)
    3. Start a new watch party
    4. Scroll all the way down to the episode that you want, then click it
    5. Select the season that you want to watch
    6. Hope you remember what episode that you just finished so that you can select the next…

  6. Give the ability to fast forward content.
    for instance if a stream is cut off due to an internet problem and the stream has to restart the watch party from the beginning

    Thanks for your feedback! We’re currently investigating all kinds of different content controls, including the ability to fast forward and rewind a Watch Party. This is a great suggestion as we continue to build out our roadmap for the rest of the year.

  7. Have the promo image of the show or movie the watch party is for on the Stream preview. This will make it quicker for viewers to glance through the Watch party streams and see which ones they may want to check out

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ve passed this along to the product team to look into as we continue shaping the product roadmap.

  8. 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

  9. The Countdown is too short. I start a Watch Party, and by the time the Countdown happens, it cuts off a few seconds of the episodes.

  10. Issues when starting new series episode. Last night we were watching a series, when I changed to a new episode, a few viewers were not able to see the new episode after refreshing their browser. They could only see my webcam. I was forced to stop the stream completely and restart in order to fix it for them. Not entirely sure why that happened.

    I also had a problem when I started a new episode and it just played the waiting for episode to start message with no countdown. After a few minutes, I had to go back to the…

    Thanks for letting us know about this issue, I’ve passed your username to the product team to investigate. Stay tuned!

  11. Cannot see show in Watch Party with Firefox 75. And I do have Amazon Prime.
