Netflix Party Lets You Watch A Movie With Quarantined Friends

Here's What's Coming to Netflix Canada in April 2020

As we all know, because of Coronavirus, all of us are Quarantined at home, no one can get out of the house. You'll all drop in a sort of virtual movie theater where, at the time chosen by the host, a movie or show will begin.

Disclaimer: A Netflix spokesperson told CNN the Netflix Party extension is not affiliated with Netflix.

Unfortunately, Netflix Party doesn't support switching between shows and movies, or even changing to another episode within the same show, but that's a feature now being worked on. Check out the details below. If you suddenly feel like setting things on fire, that probably just means you want to be social, and while in-person activities might be out of the question, there's a Chrome extension that could help with some of that cabin fever. Anyone who wants to watch the show or movie with you, then clicks the link, logs in to their own Netflix account, and then they're ready to go.

A free Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party lets you and your friends simultaneously stream shows and movies on your desktop- all while each one of you is staying alone at your respective homes. Little hacks like this, along with all the celebrities keeping us entertained on various social media sites, will likely prove invaluable in keeping us connected to one another, in unusual social distancing times. To use the service, you just have to make sure you're using a Chrome web browser and then download the free extension from the Chrome webstore.
