Which iPhone Apps Support SharePlay: The Full List – News Nation USA

Any iPhone compatible with iOS 15 includes Apple’s SharePlay feature that allows enjoying videos, music and more with friends and family via a FaceTime call. Naturally, Apple’s built-in apps work well with SharePlay, but many others have joined the list, making it easy to connect socially with other Apple users online, even when separated by distance.

FaceTime has always been one of the iPhone’s most notable features, providing video calling via Wi-Fi, among the best quality available, when it launched in 2010. As usual, Apple wasn’t the first to market with live video calling, but the tech giant quickly rose to the top spot. As technology advanced, FaceTime gained the ability to work over a cellular network, and more features were added. As a result, FaceTiming became a common term and helped drive the overwhelming success of the iPhone in the United States.

Apple first announced SharePlay at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June of 2021 and planned to release it along with iOS 15 in September. Unfortunately, SharePlay and some other new iPhone features were delayed. The ability to share a video with friends on a FaceTime call finally arrived late in October, with only a few streaming services available beyond Apple’s own offerings. An update in November mentioned a few more but the rollout is a bit slow so far. That’s why an ongoing updated list might prove to be useful for those eager to use SharePlay with their favorite streaming media service.
