The real fun of a Live Cricket match is always watching it in the stadium but in the 2020 IPL, fans could not go to the stadiums to enjoy the fun at fullest due to the CoronaVirus Pandemic. But now the official live streaming partner of IPL 2020 Disney+HotStar has introduced a marvellous feature to watch the IPL 2020 final live with your friends and loved ones. This is a Video Chat feature during a live match.
There are only two matches left in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL) and since it is not possible to go to the stadium, the video chat feature offered by Disney+HotStar is amazing to watch with friends.
Hotstar Live Video Chat During IPL Final Match
With this new feature #WatchwithYaars or ‘Watch with your friends’, Disney+HotStar subscribers can watch the Live IPL final 2020 and talk to their friends on video calls on a single screen. The first time, this video chat feature was introduced with the start of the IPL 2020 Playoffs matches. With this feature, the first time in the world, people will enjoy live matches face to face with their friends and family.
With the help of this new feature, Disney+HotStar VIP and Premium users can add up to five friends at the same time in a video call during a live match.
How Hotstar Live Video Chat Work?
After starting the live streaming of the IPL match, users just need to tap on the Start Video Call. All the callers present in the Video Call can control the features like sports commentary over the conversation with friends. If some user has a bad internet connection and is facing difficulties during the video call, then the Audio Only option is available for them. HotStar made sure that this Video Call feature will not make any lag or delay to your live streaming service.
Sunil Rayan is the head of the Disney+HotStar web streaming service, He stated “We understand that real magic of cricket comes alive in the company of family and friends; something that is difficult in these times of social distancing. Our product team took on this challenge – to provide users with a unique social-viewing experience, whilst ensuring the cricket watching experience remains seamless. ‘Watch with your friends’ is an exciting new concept that replicates offline behaviour virtually, and will forever change the way fans experience cricket.”
