Now, the platform has announced through its official Twitter account that Watch Parties are now available from this Wednesday for Twitch users on iOS and Android phones.

The Watch Parties service is available to both creators and viewers of Twitch, and allows integration with Amazon's streaming video platform, Prime Video,as the company reports on its support website.

Users can select any content available in the Amazon Prime Video movie and SERIES catalog to perform Watch Parties, and only users subscribed to the service, who can be from other regions as long as the content is also available in their country, can join.

The live broadcast is accompanied by the webcam video of the users and their comments,and these have the option to modify the space and position on the screen of these video signals.
