SharePlay

ESPN+ now supports watching with others via SharePlay

SharePlay, features baked into platforms like iOS and macOS, allow users to jump into shared experiences, like watching movies and TV shows together. It supports first-party apps like Apple TV, of course, but the good news is it also supports third-party content, too. And now one more option has joined the list.

SharePlay is back in iOS 15.1 beta

SharePlay, which allows for some pretty great screen sharing options, was first unveiled when Apple debuted iOS 15 earlier this year. However, Apple eventually decided to hold back the feature from the wide launch of the mobile operating system's major update. So while SharePlay isn't available right now, it is still coming.

SharePlay won’t be available at launch with iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS Monterey, or tvOS 15

When Apple unveiled iOS 15 and the other major software updates coming to its popular platforms, one of the many new features coupled with the new software is called SharePlay. With this feature, users will be able to quickly and easily share their screens while using apps like FaceTime. It's a handy feature, and the expectation was that it would be available at launch. However, that won't be the case after all.
