    "I think that rabbit is the most versatile syncing app I've tried because I can share all sorts of content with my friends, from videos to documents and they can view it at the same time I am. I use it often to share random cat videos to my workmates and we always have a good time! "

    "I have a best friend from Greece and I live in Asia, so you could see the distance both of us share yet we remain close because we bond on the internet, we constantly talk about each other's day. One time, We wanted to watch a livestream of our favorite band together so she tried looking for a video syncer (?) and she happened to find watch2gether which is a lifesaver because we had a helluva good time watching the video at the same time. It's crazy sometimes we just spend hours watching videos or listening to music together. it's so wonderful!!!"

    "My boyfriend and I have been doing long distance for a year and a half now and our unwritten tradition of having movie nights on fridays was almost done for until a friend told me about let's gaze. I didn't know that something like this existed! When we tried it we were able to watch our favorite comedy movies together and it's like we were just together because in order to use the site, you need a webcam and mic which we luckily have. we could hear each other laughing and making snide remarks. It's almost like we were in the same room."

    "Netflix party is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because there's finally a way to share netflix movies with my pals and a curse because it would lag sometimes just when we're getting to the good part, sigh."

    "When we're bored at work, my colleagues would just send random sharetube links on the GC and we'd watch youtube videos together until our boss calls us out! hahaha the only con about this app is that it only hosts youtube videos and nothing else."
