In this period of confinement, our habits are turned upside down. We are far from our loved ones and we have to postpone or cancel events and evenings organized for weeks or even months in advance.
However, if you had planned to have a good time watching a film with friends, know that despite quarantine, it is still possible.
Indeed, the Netflix Party extension is THE solution to avoid loneliness and schedule a virtual evening with your loved ones.
To learn more about Netflix Party and learn how to install it on your computer, read the rest of this tutorial.
What is Netflix party?
Netflix Party is a Chrome extension that lets you watch multiple movies and series, both remotely and simultaneously. It allows synchronization of the playback of videos and offers you a chat option to chat with your friends..

To have access to Netflix Party, each participant must be subscribed to the platform and connect to it via the Chrome desktop version. Therefore, note that you will not be able to enjoy it on your iPadOS, iOS or Android.
To download Netflix Party, follow these steps:

Once its installation is complete, you are now able to launch Netflix Party, for this:
