SharePlay is a feature that was introduced in iOS 15, and it is designed to allow people to do more over ‌FaceTime‌. With SharePlay, a group of people together on a ‌FaceTime‌ call can open up the Hulu app and select something to watch. The content will be synced up for everyone for a multi-person viewing experience.

All participants on the ‌FaceTime‌ call who want to watch Hulu will need to have a Hulu account to use, and pricing starts at $6.99 per month. SharePlay can be accessed by starting a ‌FaceTime‌ call and then opening the Hulu app, or by opening up the Hulu app, selecting a TV show or movie, tapping the "Share" button, and then tapping on the "SharePlay" option.

Stoked for this! My partner lives an hour and a half away, so when we watch Apple TV+ content, it's magic. Much better than "can you pause for a half sec?"..."sorry, one more time. ugh, now i'm way ahead."..."I have to use the bathroom, sorry... can we pause and do this all over again?"

Now we can watch Broad City in PEACE.

I can't imagine a large section of the subscribers making use of this feature, seeing how it its tied to a rather small screen compared to the tv.
Huh? I used this with my Apple TV just yesterday.

I love how Hulu works alongside Apple's built-in apps and features. I really wish companies like Comcast and Netflix would get onboard. Especially when you have and pay for their stuff anyways.

You can AirPlay to your Apple TV while you continue to FaceTime on your iPad or iPhone.
