Check How to use SharePlay on macOS and iOS 15

SharePlay is the main feature of Apple’s fall releases (which include iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, and macOS Monterey). It’s a new software feature built on top of FaceTime that lets you watch and listen to movies, TV shows, music, podcasts, and more while video chatting with friends and family.

The Apple TV app for movies and TV shows, the Apple Music app for music, and the Apple Podcasts app for podcasts are currently the only apps that support SharePlay. When iOS 15 launches this fall, the firm promises bigger third-party partners like HBO Max, Disney Plus, Paramount Plus, TikTok, and Twitch. However, some prominent names appear to be omitted for the time being.

For now, if you want to give it a try, here is how to do it.


  • To use SharePlay on an iPhone or iPad, first make sure everyone on the call is using iOS 15 and iPadOS 15.
  • Then start a FaceTime call, either one-on-one or in a group, with everyone you want to see or hear with.
  • Once you’ve done that, exit the FaceTime call (which will automatically move to a picture-in-picture window) and head over to a SharePlay-compatible app.
  • After that, playing something in SharePlay is as simple as it is when you’re just watching or listening to yourself – just select the content you want and it will play for everyone.
  • Controlling a SharePlay stream only requires you to play, pause, and skip as you normally would. SharePlay automatically keeps everyone’s streams in sync, so if one person pauses for a snack, the movie will stop for everyone.

You have two options to end a broadcast: end it for everyone on the SharePlay call, or end it just for you (allowing everyone else to watch).


Using SharePlay on macOS Monterey works in a similar way to iOS and iPadOS: you will need to initiate a FaceTime call, launch a compatible application, and play content that all call participants can access.

When you’re in a SharePlay session, you can access call controls through an icon in the menu bar (instead of the pop-up menu that appears on iOS and iPadOS).


Using SharePlay with an Apple TV works a bit differently than the other platforms, since you can’t actually start (or participate in) a FaceTime call through an Apple TV. In contrast, when you’re FaceTiming on a nearby iPhone, iPad, or Mac with SharePlay, Apple TV will offer you the option to transfer the media portion of that call to the larger screen via Control Center.

To access that:

  • Just follow the steps above to initiate a SharePlay FaceTime call.
  • Then press and hold the TV button on your Apple TV remote. From there, you will be able to select the new SharePlay icon.
