Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR SYNCHRONIZING MEDIA ASSET PLAYBACK ON MULTIPLE DEVICES
Abstract:

During playback of the media asset, the media guidance application may receive indications of the amount of tlie media asset consumed by tlie first and second device. In response to determining that one device has fallen behind in playback, the media guidance application may pause playback on other devices. In response to determining that the devices have become synchronized in playback, tlie media guidance application may resume playback on all devices.
