In July, Facebook made its Watch Party feature available to all Facebook groups around the world. Now, users can create their own Watch Parties on News Feed without being associated with a group. The Watch Party feature allows users to invite friends to watch videos with them on the social network. Our guide will show you how to create a Watch Party on your Facebook News Feed.

Step 1: At the top of your News Feed, tap “What’s on your mind?” to begin creating a new post.

Step 2: Tap “Watch Party.”

Step 3: If this is the first time you’ve created a Watch Party, you’ll see a window describing how the feature works. Tap “OK” at the bottom of this window to move on.

Step 4: Tap “Search videos” at the top of the screen to search for a video to add to your Watch Party queue. Note: Only videos with the “public” privacy setting will appear in your search results. Also note, you can tap “Add Videos Later” at the bottom of the screen to create and share the Watch Party on your News Feed and add videos to it later.

Step 5: Tap a video to add it to your queue. Note: You can tap multiple videos to add them all to your queue. You can also tap the search bar again to search for a different video to add to your queue.

Step 6: When you’re done adding videos to your queue, tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 7: Tap “Share” in the top-right corner of the screen to share the post containing your Watch Party to your News Feed. Note: You can tap “Say something about your watch party …” to add text to your post before sharing it.
