(Pocket-lint) – Warner Media and Snap have teamed up to add full episodes of HBO Max shows to the Snapchat mobile app. Leffort, called HBO Max Minis, will let you stream select episodes of the best series along with up to 63 other Snapchatters. Here’s everything you need to know, including how to do it.
What are HBO Max Minis in Snapchat?
HBO Max Minis is part of Snapchat Minis, which launched in 2020 to enable Snap to deliver third-party app experiences within Snapchat. Snap actually refers to Minis as “bite-sized utilities”. You can use them to buy tickets through Atom, meditate through Headspace, and even register to vote in the United States.
And now, with HBO Max Minis, you can stream entire episodes of over a dozen series for free from the streaming service, including the pilots.
How to watch HBO shows on Snapchat
You can launch the HBO Max Mini experience via the rocket icon that appears in chat or via search. Once HBO Max Mini is launched in the Snapchat app, you will need to verify your date of birth. (You must enter your date of birth to access age-appropriate content.)
What HBO Max shows can you watch on Snapchat?
HBO Max Mini will feature top HBO titles, including new releases like rebooted Gossip Girl, old favorites like Game of Thrones, as well as pilot episodes from other hit shows on the HBO Max streaming service. The full list of HBO Max shows with episodes available to stream on Snapchat is as follows:
Can you stream the shows with friends?
Perhaps the best part about the HBO Max Mini experience is that it offers synchronized playback, so that everyone who watches a show can stream the same title together. Up to 64 users can join a HBO Max Mini session by sending a chat message with a link to join the Snap Mini or sending a clickable sticker link using Snapchat’s camera. Once a title is released, anyone will be able to co-watch, chat, and send Bitmoji reactions in real time.
Is it free to watch HBO Max on Snapchat?
Yes. But, according to HBO Max owner Warner Media, the idea behind HBO Max Minis is to encourage users to subscribe. The experience will provide the option to go to HBO Max after an episode ends so that they can continue watching the series. (This will be shown to users 18 and older, the company said.)
