Ready, Set, Watch!
The easiest way to watch something together once you're in the same Space is for one person to share their screen in Chrome. That person should select Screen share in the toolbar. In the Choose what to share window, select Chrome Tab. Then select the tab that has the video you wish to share. Make sure Share tab audio is selected. Select Share.
In the Chrome tab with the video, set the video to full screen and play—it's that easy!
Tip: To improve the quality of the video for those watching, toggle on Optimize for video. This essentially changes the screen share to HD, but it might cause performance issues for the person sharing and/or the people watching.
