How you can share Disney + among your family

However, it is not highly recommended to exceed that fictitious barrier of five users per account. Not for exceeding the limit, but for the number of devices we can register. Having a limit of 10 devices linked per account, between five users, you will reach the limit as fast as connecting a mobile phone and a television or tablet for each of the members of the joint account. If you share your account with the maximum possible users, that is, 7, you will have to agree in advance on which devices the account can be used, so as not to saturate the registry. However, nothing should happen if you use Disney+ from a browser.

Even so, the most suitable number is 4 users per account. You will be able to dodge the limits of Disney Plus a little by using the offline method, which we will tell you about a little later.

GroupWatch, the best way to share Disney+

One of the star features of Disney Plus is Group Watch. It allows us to watch a film, documentary or television series together with other people who are not close to us. This functionality can be done both with members of the same account and with users who belong to different Disney+ accounts.

GroupWatch allows a Simultaneous playback on two or more devices (up to a total of 7), even enabling a “chat” so that we can express ourselves during playback. And yes, we say “chat” in quotes because it will only allow us to use predefined images, something similar to Twitch’s ’emotes mode’.

However, GroupWatch supports other interesting technologies, such as face time on devices like iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. You can make a video call at the same time that you watch a series or a movie, being a very interesting and innovative experience. At El Output we did a demo some time ago, so if you’re wondering how to use GroupWatch with FaceTime, here’s a detailed video where you can learn how to do italong with the rest of the applications that support Apple’s Shareplay functions.

Yes there is. And best of all, it is a totally official method. Disney Plus allows offline downloads. For example, let’s say you’re going on a long train trip and want to watch some Disney Plus movies or series, even though you won’t have a very good internet connection during the journey.

Well, before leaving, you can download the contents you are going to see during your trip to your mobile or laptop. And, indeed, your device will not count as connected during that time as long as you are in airplane mode.

There is no total download limit beyond the storage of your smartphone, laptop or tablet. Nevertheless, you will have to connect to the internet every 3 days for Disney+ to renew the licenses to your content and allow you to continue using it.
