Quarantine got a little easier thanks to this free extension for the Google Chrome browser called Netflix Party. It lets you start, stop and pause a Netflix movie or show so you can watch it at the same time as a group of friends and family, without the hard work of trying to synchronize everyone. (“Three, two, one … Play!”) There’s also a side chat bar where you and your friends can discuss what’s going on in the movie — much like you would if you were sitting together on the couch.
The sudden and severe lack of socializing as a result of trying to stem the spread of the new coronavirus puts a particular strain on children who have been removed from school, and on people who live alone.
Netflix Party helps bridge the gap by letting you and your friends simultaneously stream shows and movies on your desktop, so you’re always watching the same thing at the same time.
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 $9 a month and cancel at any time. Read on for how to download, install and use the Netflix Party extension to sync your movie-watching with family and friends.
How To Download Netflix Party Google Chrome extension
After everyone has logged in to Netflix on their computers, they’ll need to download the Netflix Party extension.
1. Visit netflixparty.com in your Google Chrome browser.
2. Click Get Netflix Party for free.
3. You’ll be redirected to the Google Chrome web store page to download the extension. Click Add to Chrome.
4. A pop-up box will open. Select Add Extension. You’ll now see a grey NP icon in your browser toolbar.
How To Start watching movies with friends
Now that you’ve got the extension downloaded, you can begin watching shows and movies with your friends and family. Here’s how to get started.
1. Open a new tab in your Google Chrome browser and log in to Netflix.
2. Find a show or movie you’d like to watch and click on it.
3. You’ll now see that the NP (Netflix Party) icon has changed from gray to red. Click the icon and select Start the party. You’ll become the host, so you can either select the option for you to be the only controller pausing and playing the show, or you can let anyone take control.
4. Copy the URL from the pop-up box and send it to everyone you want to invite to the group.
5. The chatroom will appear on the right side of the screen. From there, you’ll be able to see when someone joins the party.
6. Now you can laugh, cry and howl with your family and friends, and feel a little less on your own.
