Technology is amazing, and there are services out there that make long-distance relationships a little simpler. Whether you want to watch movies together online, stream music together, study together, or just be together, these apps for long-distance movie night have you covered!

Check out these three apps for long-distance movie night.


Rabbit: BE together. Here is an awesome app that lets you watch movies together online even when you are not physically together. Video chat, study, watch movies, this app is video chat and screen sharing in one piece of software. Rabbit is a relatively new app with some features worth checking out.

The developers certainly know how to bring people together in a user-friendly way.

Everything is straightforward with Rabbit. After you register and download, you will be able to create your own room on the app and set it to private mode. From there, you can invite whomever you want.

Once someone has been invited to the room, it stays active until you close it. You and your significant other will be able to watch a movie or YouTube videos or whatever you like while still having the video chat option active.



Watch2Gether is similar to Rabbit in that you can create your room, but it’s streaming and sharing capabilities are limited. With Watch2gether, you can create your room and then share the link with your significant other.

Once you have created the room, the two of you can watch YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Soundcloud for free and requires no registration. The rooms are temporary, and you can join anonymously. Watch2Gether is available on most browsers and on Android in some countries.

Let’s Gaze

Let’s Gaze is designed for long-distance relationships to watch movies together online. With Let’s Gaze, you can make a video call, sync-watch the same thing at the same time, stream YouTube videos together, watch your own video files, and insta-chat.

Let’s Gaze works by first visiting the website and beginning a session. From there, you will send a link to your significant other so that they can join you in your session. Let’s Gaze is very user-friendly and provides a simple tutorial when you first begin.

Watch the super cute demo, and try it out for yourself.

Which one is best?

All of these apps offer great features, each with different levels of sharing. We all have our own preferences and sharing needs, so I’d recommend giving each of them a try to find out which one works best for you and your significant other to watch movies together online or share your own content.

What do I like?

The Rabbit is my favorite app to watch movies together online, which is why it’s number one on our list of apps for long-distance movie night.

I love the room options: Once we have our room set up, there’s no need to go through the process again. We can simply click on the room, and we are together and sharing.

Try these apps for long-distance movie night, and let me know which one is your favorite to watch movies together online. Have you used one, or are you currently using one of these apps? Tell me about your experiences with them and what you love about them or what you don’t love about them.
