So, if you are missing those moments, then an app called Airtime allows you to video chat with friends and family and watch YouTube videos together at the same time on their respective devices. The app also lets users pause the video and have a discussion about a particular scene just like normal days. Additionally, users can also send reactions, emojis and text messages to each other.
Let’s see how to get going with the app and start watching YouTube videos together.
Setting up the Airtime app
Open Airtime app on your smartphone and tap on Get Started button
Enter your phone number for registration and verify it using the OTP received on the given phone number
Once verified, tap on Create Room option and add other users in the room
Now, tap on YouTube option and start watching the video.
The setup process is like any other video calling app. All you need to do is install the app on your smartphone and ask the other person to install the app. Also, both need to set up the app using phone number and OTP. Once done, create an Airtime room. To do that, tap on Create Room from the home screen of the app and invite your friends. After that, tap on the Next button.
Airtime currently supports up to 5 people in a room.
How to start watching
To start watching, you’ll need to send an alert to all the participants of the room asking to start a normal video call. To do that, open the room and tap on the Hand icon. Once people have joined, select the video you want to watch together by tapping on the Popcorn icon. Once selected, tap on the Post to Room button to start watching.
