Sharing is living, and for many Netflix users part of its appeal is being able to watch a movie or series in company and chat at the same time. Unfortunately it's not always feasible for everyone to meet in front of a single screen, so to make up for that we have Netflix Party.
Synchronize Netflix playback on different accounts
This is an extension for Chrome that allows synchronization of video playback between multiple users. This way, even if you're separated by hundreds of kilometers, you can watch content at the same time.
It works as follows:
- Step 1: Install the extension on your computer.
- Step 2: Open a video on Netflix (through the web application, not in the desktop app).
- Step 3: Create your private Netflix party by clicking the "NP" button in your browser's address bar. Share the generated URL with other users.
- Step 4: If you're the one joining a party, paste the URL into your browser.
The extension will let everyone watch the same video at the same time and also comment on it in a parallel chat. It's not quite like being in the same room, but it's pretty close...
