Kast's watch party platform allows you to stream and share content with friends and family, video and text chat, and pick content from Kast TV and play it for the whole watch party. As a facilitator of these communities, we aim to provide an environment where everybody feels welcome to share what they love with their friends. These guidelines are for all Kast applications, websites and Kast-managed servers, and other platforms such as but not exclusively Discord, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit.
To connect friends and family regardless of device or location. Create, curate, and consume content in watch parties while experiencing joyful moments with those you love, every single day. Play. Watch. Be Together.
