The Netflix Party Chrome Extension is just what you need to feel closer to friends in quarantine.
Rhea Srivastava -
Netflix has given yet another reason for its users to rejoice. Not just with its wide catalogue, now there's another tool in your kitty to feel closer to friends and family during the lockdown. Say hello to the 'Netflix Party' chrome extension which you can easily install on your device and enjoy watching a show or movie simultaneously with a few of your kin. And why wouldn't you want to, when there's so much to choose from.
The new Google Chrome extension "synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to your favourite Netflix shows." What we mean is that by using 'Netflix Party,' you and your chosen friends can watch anything together at exactly the same time, as long as you all have Netflix, of course!
Here's a little guide to help you through:
Go to NetflixParty.com and click "Get Netflix Party for Chrome."
That will take you to Chrome's Web Store. You'll then click "Add to Chrome" which will prompt you to "Add Extension."
You'll then see the "NP" icon on the upper right-hand side of your screen.
Pick any film or movie you want. Click the "NP" icon and copy and paste the URL of your selection.
Click "Copy URL" and then send that link to any friend you like.
When they open the link, voilà, they'll see exactly what you do.
There you have it. Now it's time to grab the popcorn and feel like you're right in the middle of your own watch party. Go nuts!
