(NBC News) -- Facebook is introducing a new feature to bring its users closer together.
"Watch Together" is a new feature that can be found inside Facebook Messenger.
It allows users to watch videos with their friends and family and see their reactions in real time, over Messenger video calls and Messenger rooms.
The new feature was created to make spending quality time with loved ones feel as close to an in-person experience as possible.
Facebook believes this will be a useful feature as public health officials continue to urge everyone to practice social distancing.
