Now we’re all self-isolating, watching Netflix together is that little bit trickier. Luckily, some helpful developers have created a Chrome extension called “Netflix Party”, which “synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to your favorite Netflix shows.”
The extension has actually been around for a few years now, but is only now receiving attention due to the current situation.
To make use of it, simple install the free extension, launch a show/film on Netflix, open the extension and send the URL to a friend. Once they open the link, they’ll be taken to the exact same point of the show/film and there will be a real-time chat sidebar down the side as well.
You can install the extension here.
