The latest developer beta brings a long-awaited feature to macOS Monterey.
As spotted by MacRumors, the new macOS Monterey 12.1 beta brings SharePlay to the Mac for the first time. The feature, which is already available on iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS, allows users to share content in sync with their family and friends.
The feature works across a number of apps, including FaceTime for screen sharing. It also will work for services like Apple Fitness+, allowing you to do a workout together while you might be apart.
As Apple announced at WWDC, it will also work with third-party apps like Disney+, HBO Max, and TikTok.
The feature is still only available to developers. It is currently unclear when macOS Monterey 12.1 will launch to everyone.
