Live commentary with video has gone mainstream, and many popular video streaming services have added dedicated co-watching solutions so that subscribers to that service can watch with friends, family and communities in a shared and integrated way rather than relying on video calls and manually firing off videos at the same time. They've also included interactions like emojis and reactions so that members of a watch party can interact with each other.
On this page we take a look at three top templates for YouTube Co-Watching Events, available from Envato Elements.
