With movie theaters closing and people keeping their social distance, Netflix Party maybe the best way to hang out with your friends (sort of) while binge-watching together.
Netflix Party is a Google Chrome extension that allows people to automatically sync their programs remotely and even chat while watching. According to the web store description, “Netflix Party is a Chrome extension for watching Netflix remotely with friends, e.g., for movie nights with that long-distance special someone. It synchronizes video playback and adds group chat.”
After installing the extension, one person can start a movie or episode and click the toolbar icon to generate a link. That person’s friends can sign into Netflix, open the shared link in Chrome and click on the red “NP” initials in the toolbar, syncing up the feed and opening a chat area on the right hand side of the screen.
