The era of social distancing caused by the coronavirus pandemic has altered how many people interact with others. Fortunately, Netflix Party has launched, allowing people to watch videos with friends and chat together at the same time.
How does a Netflix Party work?
To use Netflix Party, all participants will require Chrome browsers and the Netflix Party extension.
This Chrome extension only works with Netflix and no other streaming sites.
Once the Chrome extension is installed, log into Netflix and select a TV show or film to watch en masse.
Next, click the NP extension icon after you loaded up your video of choice.
As the Netflix Party host, you can then copy the link from the extension icon and send it to the people you wish to watch with.
Again, they will need to be logged into their Netflix accounts to be able to access the chat.
For the people joining the party, copy the link, which will direct them to Netflix.
To access the Netflix Party, click the NP icon in the top-right of the screen.
Those wishing to see and hear your friends via your webcams while watching Netflix, can install Scener.
And those preferring to watch a video on YouTube or Hulu, can use Metastream.
Metastream has a text chat feature like Netflix Party.
A further option is TwoSeven, allowing to watch YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, or HBO Now while video chatting with your friends.
