Looking to have movie nights while social distancing? – It’s called ‘Netflix Party.’ Here’s how it works
Google Chrome and Netflix have a solution if you're missing movie nights with friends during the period of social distancing -- "Netflix Party."
The Chrome extension allows people to watch and chat with a friend from separate locations.
All people have to do is download the extension, put on a show or movie, and click the "NP" icon on the toolbar.
People will then get a link that they can send to anyone they want, and can chat the night away. It is also possible to restart and pause the movie whenever needed.
