This New Netflix Party Browser Extension Allows You to Stream and Chat With Friends

With many people across the world self-quarantining to prevent the spread of COVID-19, people are figuring out ways to stay connected.

To help, a new Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party has been created to let you and your friends watch Netflix together.

Deemed as “a new way to watch Netflix with your friends online,” per its site, Netflix Party allows you to sync playback so that you and your friends can watch and end movies and TV shows at the same time.

The extension also acts as a digital chatroom, with a side-bar for real-time commentary between you and your friends. After everyone adds the extension, one person sets the room up and shares the invite link.

TechRadar reports that while it isn’t an official Netflix feature—it’s supported by a Patreon page—it’s easy to add to your Google Chrome browser and free if you have a Netflix account. It’s not yet available for Safari or Firefox.
