Facebook is launching a new feature aimed at adding a new layer of social media management.

It’s called Watch Party and allows people with similar interests to view live or recorded video while interacting in real-time.

Facebook started testing the feature in January and rolled it out Wednesday.

Anyone has the ability to start a Watch Party group and add co-hosts.

The new feature could help Facebook compete with companies like Youtube and live-stream gaming platform Twitch.
