anyone had success with share play?

iOS and iPadOS

Hi everyone hope you're all doing well and staying safe. I know share play is a new feature in iOS 15 I know it's available for both iPod touch and iPhone and iPad. Has anybody had any success using it to watch or listen to anything if so how do you do this? So far my attempts to use it have been completely unsuccessful. Any tips or recommendations on how to use it successfully would be much appreciated thank you very much for your help everyone :-)

Myself and my friends use it a lot and it works well. My only slight criticism with it is that you don't seem to be able to change the volume of the media you are playing without affecting the volume of the facetime call. I have written to Apple about this but as yet it doesn't seem to be fixed. It's far from a dealbreaker though. It's a brilliant feature! I just wish it had been around during lockdown.

Yeah, tried it. I was quite excited by the prospect of using an iphone logged into a different account and headphones to watch the audio described version of a movie in the same room as sighted individuals who would be watching the regular version. Sadly, the lag is too great and it's just not enough in sync.
