Social media giant Facebook has announced intent to shut down its Watch Party feature come April.
This comes barely three years after launch of the video streaming plug which allows people to watch videos on Facebook together in real time.
Facebook revealed this in its recent mail to users on Tuesday, March 16, explaining that users will no longer be able to create or view watch parties across Pages, profiles or Groups.
The mail reads: “We are sending you this email because you have previously hosted a watch party on Facebook. We would like to inform you that starting April 16, 2021, Watch Party will no longer be available on Facebook.
“This means that you will no longer be able to create or view watch parties across Pages, profiles or Groups, and all previous watch parties will no longer be available to rewatch.
“If you would like to download your past Watch Party posts or comments, please click the link below for more information. Your data will be available for download through April 15, 2021.”
