Title: HANDOFF FEATURE FOR CONTENT SHARING PLATFORMS
Abstract:
Implementations disclose a handoff feature for a content sharing platform. A method includes maintaining a session history of a session that occurred at a first client device, the session history identified by a visit identifier (ID) and comprising a set of recently-watched content items on a content sharing platform, determining that a user associated with the session is active on a second client device, transmitting, to the second client device, a session continuation notification associated with the visit ID and a navigation end-point of the session, receiving, from the second client device, a request for a watch page user interface (UI) of a content item corresponding to the navigation end-point of the session, and transmitting, to the second client device, instructions to load the watch page UI and to request additional components of the watch page UI using the visit ID.
