Disney + Hotstar introduces special feature for IPL, will be able to watch matches with friends

Disney + Hotstar introduced the “Watch with your friends” feature, which allows users to make video calls with their friends and family members while watching the match. This feature only applies to the Indian Premier League IPL, which is a bit strange as now only two matches are left to watch. Now that this technology has been introduced, there is a possibility that future cricket and sports can be added to it, but Disney + Hotstar told Gadgets 360 that it is currently a special one- Is off.

To use this feature, you have to press the play button in a live IPL match and then click on “Start Video Call”. You can now use this feature to watch the IPL 2020 final match held on Tuesday. However, this option will only be available in portrait mode on your device. Which means that you cannot enjoy watching a full-screen match. You can add up to 5 of your friends with Disney + Hotstar’s “Watch with your friends” feature. After all friends are added to the match, you will get a volume knobs access to the match commentary and your friends’ conversations, so you can decide who you want to prioritize and if you don’t want a video call, You can also select the “audio only” option.

Technically you can also enjoy video calling through a third party app such as Zoom or Google Meet, but you may have problems with synchronization. This is especially annoying for live sports. Yakinan, you may not like to react to any other wicket falling before you, because the match is streaming on their TV a few seconds before your match. Disney + Hotstar’s ‘Watch with Your Friends’ feature takes special care of this and ensures that everyone can enjoy the moments of the match simultaneously.

At the moment, no information has been revealed as to whether this ‘Watch with Your Friends’ feature from Disney + Hotstar will be offered for non-live content.

However, this feature of the app appears to be weak on three aspects – bitrates, seconds on the frame, and resolution. Disney + Hotstar has an average of 3Mbps for live sports, which makes pixelates appear on the big screen. At the same time, it does not even support 60fps and it does not even get 4K resolution for sports content.
