What features does Popcornflix offer?

Access to a streaming library full of movies might be its main attraction, but it does offer some additional features, including:

The Moments section is part of every video and allows people who are watching the same videos to interact with each other. There isn’t a filter for what people post nor is there a way to keep comments hidden from kids.
