Watching sessions with friends is now easier than ever. First, find the sessions page on the left hand side of your screen and select the session you would like to join.
Once you join a session, select the "Join private group" button in the top right hand side of your screen.
That button will activate your camera and microphone so that you can watch the session live with friends, while video chatting with them in real time. There is also a chat function within the private group session, which keeps your messages private from others viewing the same session that are not part of your private group.
If you would like to send a chat message the instructor, or if you would like to go back and watch with the public group, just click "Join Chat" button in the top righthand part of your screen to return to the public session page.
