The social isolation stemming from the ongoing COVID-19 situation has largely curbed the world’s ability to socialize in person. And while the kibosh has temporarily been put on in-person movie nights, there’s now a Google Chrome extension for Netflix that’s offering the next best thing. Called “Netflix Party,” this new extension allows you to watch movies and shows with your friends thanks to the extension synchronizing video playback.
Netflix Party enables private “parties” to be created, where friends who also subscribe to the popular streaming service can join, and then watch their favorite programs together in real-time, allowing everyone to experience the twists, turns, and surprises of plots together in unison. The new extension also lets everyone in a private party talk together in a group chat app-style format so you and your pals can comment on the movie or episode as it unfolds. Best of all, the Netflix Party extension is completely free. And, thanks to the intuitive interface, installing the program is so easy that even the least technologically-literate of individuals should have no problem getting it set up. To install the Netflix Party Google Chrome extension you can go to the program’s website linked below.
