Social Distancing doesn’t have to mean social disconnection. This new tool could prove a godsend for those of us who love watching Netflix shows and movies with our friends. What we have here is – Netflix Party, which is a Google Chrome Extension that lets you simultaneously watch and stay connected online with friends located anywhere.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, it boasts around 3,000,000+ users worldwide with mixed reviews. That’s a staggering userbase and a testament to its popularity. But, as I said, the reviews are uneven. And even more importantly, it is not officially supported or endorsed by Netflix.

Ergo, you may proceed at your own risk!

Having said that, let’s get crackin’

    will be able to pause, forward, rewind and play some other content.
  • In the next pop-up, you’ll get a link. Copy and share this URL with your friend(s). Ensure the ‘Show Chatbox’ option is ticked. Chatbox allows you and your pals to chat while watching content.

That’s it.
