imo, one of the world's largest instant communication platforms, has launched a new feature, "Play Together," for its users in Bangladesh.
It aims to bring people even closer, virtually, in these Covid-19 pandemic times.
Going far beyond generic talk, chat, messaging, and social networking, Play Together disrupts with its exciting features which allow users to invite families and friends online and indulge together in one group to enjoy watching movies, listening to music and sharing a screen – all under one platform.
The Play Together feature's distinctive difference from other communication platforms' features is that it allows users to interact in expanded forms including creating virtual rooms and watching videos together, read a press release.
Play Together allows a user to create a virtual party room, invite others – a maximum 20 people to a room – to join, and engage in multiple activities together including watching YouTube and self-uploaded videos, listening to music and sharing a user's screen.
This feature can be accessed in simple ways. Users can see Play Together in their chat list in the imo app. They can click YouTube or Music to create a room and then invite others to join.
They can also select "Play Together" in the lower right section of the virtual room to switch to other functions including "Sing," and "Share Screen." Or when a user is making a voice call with friends, they can also click "Play Together" on the calling page to use the feature.
With this new feature of imo, users in Bangladesh can connect with one another on a more involved level – even while being apart on different continents and fighting the boredom of a socially-distanced and quarantined way of life.
