Hulu App Gains Support for SharePlay

The Hulu app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV was today updated with support for SharePlay, allowing Hulu users to watch streaming TV shows and movies with one another over FaceTime.


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.
