Netflix Hack to Create Binge-Watching Parties With Friends

This Netflix Hack Helps You Create Virtual Binge-Watching Parties With Your Mates

Netflix Party is a brand new Google Chrome extension that's here to help you watch movies and TV shows with your friends while social distancing at home.

The first thing most of us will miss while in self-isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic is human interaction. It's inevitable; us humans — even introverts — are naturally social, so it can be tough to stay positive and mentally well while feeling shut off from our friends, family, and forms of entertainment (like going to the theatres) that we usually rely on. Enter: Netflix Party.

Available as a Google Chrome extension, it allows you to create virtual viewing parties that, essentially, makes it supereasy to sync up your Netflix binge-watching sessions with your friends and chat while you watch. While this isn't an official app created by Netflix, it's actually pretty genius and simple to use. All you have to do is add the extension to your Google Chrome internet browser, then start a video on Netflix and share the automatically generated personalised link with your friends.

To the right of your video, a chat room will open up and voila! You can all speak through the entire movie or TV show together — without being shushed by anyone else around you like you would at the cinema.
