- Users can now browse for homes and apartments in sync over FaceTime.
More and more apps are adding SharePlay support now that it is finally available.
In a press release, Zillow has announced that it has added support for FaceTime's SharePlay feature on iOS and iPadOS. Users of the app are now able to browse for homes and apartments in sync together while on a FaceTime call with the iPhone and iPad.
David Beitel, Zillow's chief technology officer, said that the feature will be great for both those looking for a purchase or rental as well as the real estate agents working for the properties.
Zillow says that, according to "customer research," 86% of Zillow users regularly shop for a home or rental with someone else. That makes SharePlay a fantastic feature for anyone who wants to house or apartment hunt but is apart from the person that would be on the hunt with them.
