SharePlay video sharing over FaceTime has arrived on Hulu via an update issued Monday morning.
“In this release, we are helping spread the Hulu love by introducing SharePlay,” the patch notes on the App Store reads. “With SharePlay, you can watch content from the Hulu streaming library in sync with friends and family over FaceTime.”
To use Hulu’s SharePlay features, all participants will need an active Hulu subscription. Pricing starts at $6.99 per month for the ad-supported tier, while the ad-free tier costs $12.99.
Introduced in iOS 15.1, SharePlay allows anyone in a FaceTime call to share content with all participants. Everyone will get their own feed, with the episode or title and precise playback synchronized and controllable by all so that everyone can be on the same page.
Anyone can rewind, fast-forward, reverse, and it will apply to every feed. SharePlay also automatically lowers the volume when it detects speech so friends and family can be heard during the content playback.
