Dr. Mac is enjoying group FaceTime and SharePlay more than he expected.
The result is a well-built recipe app that provides a better experience for the end user, and one which tries to respect the creator content it organizes by offering source links, tools to discover more recipes from the same creator as they’re published, and a feature that encourages repeat visits to recipe sites. But some of Pestle’s other features make it almost too easy to bypass creators’ websites, which could cause concerns.

At its First Look event this week, MasterClass announced new features and partnerships, including support for SharePlay in iOS 15.1.
Kahoot!, a global learning platform company, added support for SharePlay in its mobile app, a powerful set of features for shared experiences while on a FaceTime call, making it possible for family and friends to play kahoots together completely in sync even when they are apart. To use Kahoot! via SharePlay, users simply start a FaceTime call and then open the Kahoot! app. After selecting a learning game in the Kahoot! app, the host can start a SharePlay session. This will allow all participants in the FaceTime call to automatically enter the game and be able to play smoothly without opening any additional app or device. Users can create their own kahoot on any topic in minutes, or choose from more than 50 million user-generated and publicly available kahoots, in addition to premium collections from Kahoot! Academy and partners, including Marvel, Disney, Star Wars™, National Geographic and more.
The highly anticipated FaceTime SharePlay feature is back in the first iOS 15.1 beta. That’s not all that Cupertino has added, though.
Apple says SharePlay won’t be available in iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, and macOS Monterey when they ship this fall. The shared experience video streaming feature for FaceTime will show up as an update some time later in the fall.
