A method for resuming playback of a media item after user co-participation in playback of the media item is described. A processing device provides playback of a media item to a first user and a second user. The processing device determines that the first user is not participating in the playback at a first point in time corresponding to a first temporal location in the media item and that the second user is not participating in the playback at a second point in time corresponding to a second temporal location in the media item. The processing device receives a request to resume the playback of the media item for the first user. The processing device provides the playback of the media item from the first temporal location. The processing device provides an indication that the playback has reached the second temporal location.
