Zillow adds support for iOS 15’s SharePlay, so you can look at homes together from your studio apartments

Have you ever ever wished to aimlessly scroll via Zillow and admire all of the heinously costly homes that you simply’ll by no means be capable of afford because of the skyrocketing worth of actual property — but additionally share that have with a good friend or beloved one who isn’t in a position to be part of you in your delusional aspirational searching in actual life?

Properly, Zillow has debuted the answer to that dubiously frequent downside by including help for Apple’s new SharePlay function to its iPhone and iPad apps. Which, in flip, permits you to browse listings (one thing that Zillow — an organization that seems to be utterly unfamiliar with the existence of baseball — describes in its press launch as “America’s favourite pastime”) over FaceTime.

In Zillow’s protection, the corporate says that 86 p.c of its customers browse listings with a good friend, partner, or roommate, so making it simpler to do over video conferencing does make a certain quantity of sense when considered in that mild. And on condition that SharePlay has native API help in iOS, it may’t be too tough to combine help (particularly for an app that doesn’t have to fret about issues like authenticating streaming logins or completely syncing video and audio playback, like streaming apps do).

The brand new SharePlay function in Zillow is out there now, though you’ll must be sure that your system is up to date to iOS 15.1 or iPadOS 15.1 or later as a way to use it.
