After three years, Facebook announced to close down its online co-viewing feature, Watch Party, on the platform by April 16, 2021.

Watch Party is a virtual hosting feature that allows Facebook users to watch live or recorded videos or movies together in real-time.

All posts, comments, and reactions with a watch party will not be available after April 16.

Those who want to keep the memories can request to download a copy using the “Download Your Information” tool found on the “Settings & Privacy” section under the Facebook menu. It would take a while for users to finish preparing the request and download the content.

However, users cannot download the playlist info, attendee lists, viewer stats, or other people’s comments on the said feature.

For more information about this announcement and more, read more on Facebook Help Center.
