Lockdown just leveled up a notch.
Group chat not quite the same during the Great Coronavirus Outbreak of 2020? Well, now you can hang out with your friends virtually thanks to the new Chrome Extension, Netflix Party.
A new way to watch films and TV shows with your friends, the app synchronises your video playback in HD with your mates, so you can watch shows at the exact same time as each while chatting throughout. It comes at the perfect time too, as the world begins to isolate at home amid the COVID-19 outbreak. A functional “group chat” sits on the sidebar, allowing you to pop your phone down for once and immerse yourself in your film or show of choice with your best pals. The best part? You don’t even have to get out of bed to “hang out”.
The app works by allowing users to create their own ‘party’, where you’ll select what you’re watching and then be able to share the link with those you’d like to stream with. You’ll all watch in sync, meaning any shocking twists and turns can be discussed in the moment within the app’s live group chat.
There’s a ton of new releases on the streaming website this month, with even more gems set to drop next month including Peaky Blinders S5, After Life S2, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine S7. Check out the Netflix Party app here.
