iPhone Screen Sharing and More With SharePlay

SharePlay is a new feature in iOS 15.1 that allows you to share your iPhone or iPad screen with others over FaceTime. You can use this to share photos, web pages or almost anything while using FaceTime. You can also use SharePlay to play synchronized music or video.

    Is it true that the Shareplay feature only works in the TV App if you subscribe to Apple TV+? Also, although I know Netflix is not supported by Shareplay (at least not yet), if I share my screen with someone and play a Netflix movie on my screen, will the other person be able to see the movie? Hear the audio from the movie? Similarly, if I play a movie from my TV library (not Apple TV+) while sharing my screen, will the other person be able to see and hear the movie?

    David: Not sure. Try it. It would make sense that the sharer would need it, right? Probably makes sense that both parties need it. Not sure what happens when you try to share some other video. You’ll have to experiment with it.

    Yes, I agree I’ll have to experiment. But I saw another video demonstrating that you can share screen and play a YouTube video, and the other person can see and hear. I would think it would work the same way with Netflix, unless there is something built in to block it. Why would both parties need to have Netflix, wouldn’t it be enough for the sharer to subscribe to Netflix and play the movie on the screen he/she is sharing?
