How Do I Join a Watch Party on iPhones and iPads?

All Prime Video customers are able to join a Watch Party.

  1. Open the link you received on your iPhone or iPad. You’ll be prompted to open the Prime Video app. If you don’t see the prompt, click on the “double A” icon in Safari and select “Request Mobile Website,” in order to receive this prompt.
  2. If you’re not entitled to watch the content selected in the Watch Party, you’ll be prompted to subscribe to Amazon Prime Video, or buy or rent the content, depending on the content you’re trying to watch.
  3. Enter your desired username under Chat as.
  4. Select Video and Chat – to view the Watch Party on your device with the option to join in the chat room – or Chat only if you wish to view the Watch Party on another supported device.

For content included with Prime Video, Amazon Prime members or Prime Video subscribers are eligible to join a Watch Party in their country. Non-Amazon Prime members trying to access eligible titles included with an Amazon Prime membership or Prime Video subscription will be prompted to subscribe to Prime Video - with free 30-day trial available (if eligible). If the title is available for purchase or rent, you'll also prompted to purchase or rent, if you don't already have access to the title.

The participants must be from the same country as the host and the host must begin their Watch Party from PrimeVideo.com. 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.
