While watching, you and your friends can react to the streaming content with any of the six emojis. If a user reacts to the streaming content with an emoji, it will display across the screen of other viewers in the group.

Can you group Disney Plus without a subscription?

You can’t group Disney Plus without a subscription. You will need a Disney Plus subscription for inviting friends to watch movies or TV shows with the Group Watch feature. However, Disney + allows up to four different profiles to stream together from one account.

How Many Devices Can You Watch Disney + On?

With a single subscription, you can create four different profiles to watch on devices simultaneously. For example, another person can watch a different movie or TV show from another device using any of the profiles while you are watching something else. 

Does Disney Plus Group Watch Support Chat?

Disney Plus Group Watch does not support any chat feature right now. The GroupWatch feature works on more than one device with no extension or app for chatting with friends while streaming. However, viewers have the option of reacting to the content with an emoji.

Are You Unable to Join a Disney Plus GroupWatch?

Some people find it hard to join a Disney Plus GroupWatch because of several factors. Don’t fret because these issues are easy to fix with steps like:

  1. Only seven people can GroupWatch a stream at once, including the people who started the group. So, if you can’t join a Disney Plus GroupWatch, it might be because seven people have already joined the group.
  2. If a GroupWatch has ended, you won’t be able to join it.
  3. If you are streaming with a single Disney Plus account, only four profiles are supported.
  4. Disney Plus has content restrictions in some countries. So, you won’t be able to GroupWatch restricted content in your country, even if you are invited to the stream.
  5. Also, you have to know that new movies often require subscribers to have Premier Access before they can stream them. So, only people who have paid for the movie can stream it on a GroupWatch.

Disney Plus is bringing a lot of gems to their subscribers, and the GroupWatch feature is only the beginning!
