This new Google extension for Netflix lets you chat and watch a movie with friends all at the same time.
The Enhanced Community Quarantine shun everyone from spending time outside your home. So it is just right about the time that Google rolled out this new extension to spend more time with your squad while you’re stuck at home.
The new Google extension synchronizes video playback which lets you watch the movie all at the same time. It also allows anyone in the invited group to pause, play, fast forward and rewind the movies, so you’re always in the same time frame.
The extension also features a side chat bar where you and your friends can discuss what’s going on in the movie.
In order for this to work, everyone you send an invite to will need to have access to Netflix. If they don’t have an account, Netflix is offering a free 30-day trial for new subscribers. If they’re not a new subscriber, they can reactivate their account for as low as Php 349 a month and cancel at any time.
After everyone has signed up for Netflix or logged in on their computers, they’ll need to download the Netflix Party extension by going to www.netflixparty.com on your Google Chrome browser, click Get Netflix Party for free, then after which you’ll be redirected to the Google Chrome web store page to download the extension. Click Add to Chrome then Select Add Extension. You’ll now see a grey NP icon in your browser toolbar.
Once you are all set-up you can now start watching with friends by opening a new tab in your Google Chrome browser and log in to Netflix, after that find a show or movie you’d like to watch and click on it. Click the icon and select Start the party. Copy the URL from the pop-up box and send it to everyone you want to invite to the group. The chatroom will appear on the right side of the screen. From there, you’ll be able to see when someone joins the party.
