Apple adds Fitness + updates, including group workout feature – TechCrunch

After unveiling the Apple Watch Series 7, Apple shared the updates coming to Fitness +, its fitness service built around Apple Watch.

Currently, the $ 9.99 / month service is available in six countries, including the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. But at its press conference today, Apple announced that the service will be available in many other countries this fall, including Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, France, Italy, Russia and more. The content will be subtitled in six languages.

Apple also announced that it will be adding new Pilates and guided meditation content for Fitness + subscribers starting in the fall. Each day, Fitness + will add guided meditations focused on gratitude, mindfulness and calming. These experiences will be available in video and audio form, and could compete with apps like Headspace and Calm.

Also in the fall, Fitness + will launch group workouts, powered by Share Play. This allows subscribers to exercise alongside their friends via FaceTime or a group chat thread, no matter where they are in the world. Up to 32 people can exercise together at a time.
