Netflix Party is a Google Chrome extension that you can download to watch Netflix with your friends online. How it works is that Netflix Party synchronises video playback and adds group chat to your favourite shows so that you can host long distance movie nights and TV watch parties.

Imagine being able to watch your favourite shows together while typing away to chat with your friends, either to catch up or to discuss the plot of the show, without having to leave the comfort of your own homes.

It's also apt for the current situation we are all in. You will be able to do your part as a responsible citizen by practising social distancing and staying home while streaming Netflix shows all day long with your friends. Plus, it's absolutely free to download!
