If you’re going to be missing nights in with friends chilling with a takeaway and Netflix thanks to social distancing, this new platform is a game changer!
‘Netflix Party’ is a new way to watch Netflix with your loved ones online without all being in the same room. The app synchronises the video playback (so if you pause for a loo break, the video pauses for everyone) and there’s a group chat where you can all gossip and natter. It’ll never be as good as the real thing, but it’s a nice alternative. All you need to do is;
- Install Netflix Party (link below).
- Open a video in Netflix.
- Click the red ‘NP’ icon to start the party and share the URL to invited friends.
- If you’re the invitee, click the URL, and then NP, and you should automatically be directed.
It’s free, only available for Chrome browsers, and you can download the browser attachment here. Everyone in the party does need their own Netflix account, though – we’re sure most people do these days!
