  1. Click on the link you've been sent, using a desktop web browser.

  3. Once you're eligible to watch the video in Watch Party, you'll be redirected to the join page where you need to enter your desired username under Chat as.
    Both host and participants will need to have access to titles, through an Amazon Prime membership/Prime Video subscription, or by renting or purchasing non-Prime titles for a Watch Party. Content from Prime Video Channels and live content aren’t currently eligible.
  4. Click Join Watch Party to join the Watch Party.

Customers are eligible to join a Watch Party in their country. Titles included with Amazon Prime or Prime Video are only available to Amazon Prime members or Prime Video subscribers. Customers who wish to host or participate in a Watch Party for titles available for rental or purchase, need only rent or buy that title in order to participate.

The participant must be from the same country as the host, and the host must have started their Watch Party from PrimeVideo.com. Watch Party links expire seven days after they have been created. The availability of content and titles may vary over time and by location.

Note: Watch Parties can be watched through the Prime Video app on supported Fire TV devices in France, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, India, and Canada, the Prime Video app for Android mobile phones, Android tablets or Fire tablets, iPhones and iPads, and on desktop browsers, except Internet Explorer and Apple's Safari. Other devices such as smart TVs, game consoles, and connected media players are currently not supported for the playback of Watch Parties.
