In this video, Jamison is in London and I am in DC and we are watching Star Wars in real time and chatting through it. Squire's bufferless tech enables disruptive experiences like this and theres no lag, dropout, freezing or glitching.
Competitors to Watch Party are Teleparty, Disney Groupview and Netflix Party
The competitors only offer text chat. Onboarding is difficult and requires a chrome extension. Even with a correct install, users experienced tons of technical issues and most people gave up.
Watch Party is browser based and requires users to click one button, enter a quick password and then they're onboard. Watch Party can also stream automatically so people can watch without joining and see the participants' real time video chat with no added lag.
