“Netflix Party” Lets Family and Friends Watch Movies Together While Social Distancing. Here’s How It Works

As the coronavirus continues to spread, more and more people are practicing social distancing to prevent the disease from spreading any further. Netflix partnered with Google Chrome to create an extension called Netflix Party, where you can watch with friends virtually.

If you have Google Chrome and a Netflix subscription, follow these easy steps. You want to open Chrome and go to netflixparty.com and then select “Get Netflix Party for free.” This will open up a new page to the chrome web store.

Click “Add to Chrome” and then choose “Add extension.” You’ll see Netflix Party added to the top right corner of your browser, and it will say “NP.” It’s essential to make sure your friends are doing this as well.

Go to Netflix.com in Chrome and choose what you want to watch. Click the “NP” icon on your browser. Select “Start the Party” and copy the URL that shows up. Share that URL with your friends. As soon as they click the link and log in, enjoy!
