PlayTime is a MYETV exclusive that will be accessible to anyone during halloweek 2023, with this new feature we have literally brought what was previously vertical to the horizontal and will have with it numerous new features; one of which will be the ability to host any playtime and stream it to multiple people at the same time; the host will be able to go forward or backward through the contents-[Contents]: [every content intended as text, images, audio or video], stop or start them, and guests will automatically see everything the host decides. What today we would call “watch together” but with some more functionality.
First of all we need to clarify what a PlayTime is, here is everything we know about playtime: https://blog.myetv.tv/2023/09/16/playtime-a-new-way-to-watch-the-myetv/
Now we can also understand how this PlayTime can be transmitted in real time to multiple people at the same time:
The first button of the modal window will allow you to accessAccess [the simple access to a website as a visitor] the playtime of that timeline alone. The second button will allow you to start a host session into which other people can connect, knowing the link or session code. Everything the host does will be broadcast to all the guests who connect, if the host jumps to the next content-[Contents]: [every content intended as text, images, audio or video] all the guests will automatically jump to the next content; if the host pauses the content, all guests will automatically have the content paused until the host decides to resume playing.
This feature is in the testing phase and will be activated, along with playtime, for the first time ever for everyone during Halloween 2023 towards the end of October; it is likely that playtime will be activated first and after a few days this functionality will also be implemented. The only limit will be that to be a host you will need to be registered with MYETV with your own account-[Account]: [an Account contains the personal information that is assigned to those who register and access with email and password], while to be a guest it will not be mandatory to have a MYETV account.
This document will be updated when this feature will be out of the testing phase.
