Did you ever want to binge watch something with all of your friends, but couldn’t seem to get them together at your place? Well, the new streaming app Rabbit has changed all of that. Rabbit is perfect for playing games, watching content and even singing karaoke together with your friends.
The way it works, is you create an account which is known as “your room.” In this room, you can invite your friends to watch whatever you’re watching. If your friend is starting the watch session instead of you, they can invite you to their room. The person who owns the room controls the session. The great thing about Rabbit is they provide links to popular websites that you’re likely to watch. I noticed that Hulu didn’t appear on the popular website list so I searched for it using the broadcast tool and the site brought it right up.
It’s a good idea to sign in to your chosen media site first, before starting the live broadcast so that your friends don’t learn all of your sign in information. Once you’re signed in, find what you want to watch and press the play button!
A great feature of Rabbit is that you can set up your broadcast to be a chat session, a video session or an audio session. You can communicate with your friends only through chat or with video and sound as if they’re right there! The chat session is the best option if you’re watching a show because it doesn’t take away from the visuals and audio of the show. If you plan on using it for gaming or karaoke, then the visual and audio option is perfect!
Don’t like the show or movie you’re watching? It would be polite to ask your friends first, but then with a few simple clicks, find something else fun to watch! Rabbit is easy to use. When you first join them they’ll give you a tour around the site to show you how things work. It only takes a few minutes to learn how to use the website and then you’ll be binging with your friends like a pro.
The best part: this website is free to use! Sadly, you can’t use it on your Android phone. As an Android user, I really hope they will change this. You can however use it on your iPhone and your computer. If you don’t have one, you most likely have the other.
With Rabbit, you never have to be sad about not being able to gather your friends around the TV again! They’ll be with you wherever Rabbit is.
