Discord started testing a resource called 'Watch Together', which allows users to create YouTube video playlists that they can watch directly on the platform of chat. The novelty is only available to friends and family.
On the other hand, plans to roll it out to the Discord community more broadly by the end of October. This allows users to add a video to the server queue by searching the included interface or pasting a YouTube link.
So far, Discord hasn't had much to say about the test: "As a company founded on innovation, we're always experimenting and building things that we believe our users will enjoy." Furthermore, the spokesperson said he had "nothing else to share right now, but stay tuned."
However, the integration takes place only a few weeks after the YouTube send ceasing letters to Groovy Bot and Rythm, which are two of the most popular tools for playing music from YouTube, Spotify and other streaming services directly through Discord.
The change forced both applications to shut down. In addition, the company tested a similar feature earlier this year, but ended up temporarily shelving it.
