When you’re watching a movie in a Disney Plus GroupWatch, you can change the audio language and add subtitles without impacting others’ viewing experience in your group. Unlike reactions, which pop up on everyone’s screens in your GroupWatch, changes to audio or subtitles only affect you.

Here’s how to do it with both the desktop and mobile Disney Plus apps. 

How to change the language and subtitles during a Disney Plus GroupWatch on desktop

1. Start or join a GroupWatch on Disney Plus.

2. While the movie or show is playing, click the audio and subtitles icon in the screen’s top-right corner.

The audio and subtitles menu is in top-right on the desktop site.

3. Click to select your preferred audio language and subtitle language from the list of options. Once selected, a checkmark will appear next to your choice.

If you don’t see a checkmark, the language and subtitle choice hasn’t been selected.
