Host a Watch Party

Watch Parties are a great way to stay connected with your friends from Spotswood during this season of social distancing. Read on to learn how to host a Watch Party for your friends or neighbors.

How Do I Host a Facebook Watch Party?

You can create a watch party from your News Feed or timeline, in a group, on a Page, or from any video you’re watching. Keep in mind that you’ll need to be an admin or editor to start a watch party on a Page.

To create a watch party from your News Feed or timeline:

At the top of your News Feed or timeline, click Create Post.

  • Click then click Watch Party.
  • Search for a video or click the Live category to find our Sunday Service livestream.
  • Click Add to Queue next to any videos you’d like to add to your watch party, then click Done.
  • You can choose to add a description for your watch party, then click Post. You’ll see a message that says “Your Watch Party Is About To Begin.”
  • Once you’re in the watch party you can add friends to watch with you.

While You’re In Your Watch Party

Here are a few things you can do during your watch party:

  • Invite friends: Click Share in the bottom left to invite friends to your watch party.
  • Add comments: Click Write something… in the bottom right to chat with others who are in the watch party with you. You can click to add an emoji or to add a sticker to your comments.
  • End your watch party: Click in the top right of the video, then click End Watch Party.

Once Your Watch Party Ends

Once you finish your watch party, a recap will be saved on your timeline as a post, which will show all videos watched during the party along with any comments that were made.
