Released in 2015 by Rave Inc., Rave is a co-watching application that lets you access several different streaming services using one app.
Rave allows you to access various streaming services and syncs all active devices so that users are always watching the same part of the movie at the same time, avoiding any lags that may get in the way of a smooth movie-watching experience. From Netflix and YouTube to Vimeo and Google Drive, Rave allows you to access any and all streaming services, giving you a wide variety of content to choose from.
Rave has a focus on music too. If you are creating your music, you can even share it with others using Rave DJ, a sister service, allowing you to view it.
Rave offers watch parties that can be either public or private, each offering distinct benefits. Public watch parties enable people worldwide to join your streaming session, facilitating internet-based connections and collaborative movie-watching encounters. On the other hand, if you prefer an exclusive experience limited to your friends, you can easily switch to the app’s “friends-only” or “invite-only” modes.
The Rave app additionally provides the choice to participate in voting for the next selection. We’ve all encountered this dilemma – when you and your friends can’t agree on what to watch or listen to, and by the time a decision is reached, valuable minutes have slipped away. To address this, Rave lets you and your friends vote on the next pick, saving time and avoiding potential disputes over the most entertaining show or movie.
