Netflix Party

Want to have a movie night with friends or family but can’t because you’re social distancing? Download the Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party and you and your loved ones can watch Netflix titles at the same time on your computers. An included chat room can also allow you to share your reactions with your viewing party.
