If you miss the evenings when you and a group of friends gather to watch your favorite YouTubers, you can get it back. The Airtime app allows you to video chat with friends while watching movies, shows and YouTube videos on the same screen. You can see each other's comments and anyone can pause the video so everyone can talk about what just happened.
The app integrates several movies and TV shows, as well as YouTube and SoundCloud. So you can watch music videos and YouTube personalities and even share photos with the group from the camera of your phone or tablet. You can also stream trending songs and videos with your friends.
Here's how to start video chats while watching videos with your friends.
Setting up an Airtime room
After downloading the app for your iPhone or Android device, set up your profile and add all your friends you want to video chat with – they also need an Airtime account . Next, you need to create an Airtime room: Tap Create Room on the main screen, then invite your friends to the room and tap Next .
Airtime recommends adding five friends or less for each room for a better experience. You can also choose whether you want the room to be Secret for only invited friends to see, or Party for friends of friends to join.
To name the room, open the settings in the top right corner. You can also customize the description and color theme of the room and delete the history of the room so that all messages and media are removed.
Watching with Friends
After creating a room, send an alert to your friends about starting a video chat. To do this, open the room you have created and select Signal Room . While you wait for your friends to join, you can select a video or movie to watch by tapping the Popcorn icon at the bottom of the screen.
While watching the video with your friends, you can drop GIFs, emojis and sounds into the room – you'll see icons at the bottom of the screen that say Comments Stickers and Sounds . You can also send messages with video chats by tapping the Messages icon.
What can I watch?
The number of feature films is a bit limited compared to the rest of the YouTube universe, but there is still a good selection, including Shrek, Benjamin Button, Failure to Launch, Heathers, Donnie Darko and Odd Thomas. There are also plenty of horror movies and family-friendly movies.
You can also watch TV shows such as The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Degrassi, Forensic Files, Hell & # 39; s Kitchen and Storage Wars.
YouTube videos are also up for grabs. Just type what you are looking for in the search bar, such as the name of a YouTube influencer or a funny video compilation.
