Watch with Me Mode

Updated 2 months ago by mike moran

Watch With Me mode lets you watch Star Wars movies with your Droid. Currently, you can watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens™, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story™Star Wars: A New Hope™, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™, and Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi™ with any of the app-enabled Droids by Sphero -- up to one of each kind of Droid. Watch as they interact with each other and animate in real time to what is happening in the movie. 

You will need to have the app open to Watch With Me mode during the movie. For best results, plug in all Droids and smart devices. Connect to multiple Droids by tapping the scan button and tapping on the icons of the Droids you want to connect to. Tap 'Confirm' and you should be connected to the desired Droids. You must have a copy of the movie selected in the sub-menu. Once you have followed the steps outlined, start the movie anytime!

Note: Make sure that your mobile device is near your speakers (within ear-shot) while using the Watch With Me feature.

In early 2020, new Google Play technical requirements resulted in a required update to the Star Wars Droids app. To accommodate these technical requirements, a number of app features had to be removed in release 1.7.2.4, including the following:

• Force Band support
• BB-8 animations

Watch With Me is available for R2-D2 and BB-9E in Version 1.7.2.4 of the Android app.

All these features are still available on the iOS version of the Star Wars Droids app.
