The Netflix Party extension is only available on Google Chrome.
With the containment related to the coronavirus, it's difficult to watch movies and series face to face. Synchronizing a movie remotely is not always the best solution. Fortunately, for Netflix subscribers, there is a solution. It's an extension, developed by none other than Netflix itself, that allows multiple people to watch the same program remotely without synchronization problems.
The Netflix Party extension even integrates chat into the platform, allowing viewers to react to what's happening on the screen. This gives the impression that we're all living the experience together, even if the feature doesn't always work.
To enjoy it, all you have to do is download the plugin, choose a movie, a series episode or a document to watch and click on the "NP" (Netflix Party) logo. This will create a sharing link. You will then be able to share it with your friends or family to enjoy a moment of entertainment with them and from a distance. Please note that all viewers have a Netflix account.
The service is completely free, but a Premium version exists. By paying $5 per month, you can add emojis, voicemails and enjoy the service on other platforms.
