From family movies nights at home to YouTube sessions with friends in the dorm, many people enjoy watching videos together. In addition to being fun, these activities help people build and maintain relationships with one another, which have many positive effects on individual’s lives. The goal of this project is to design an app to allow people to virtually watch videos together when they are not physically in the same place or even watching at the same time. You will learn and apply user-centered design methods to understand the problem, design the application, and evaluate the user experience.
