As you already know, socializing is a vital part of human nature. However, amid the coronavirus pandemic, social distancing has become our new reality. Not to worry, though, because, with Netflix, you can definitely fill that void.
While others might have chosen Animal Crossing or Pokemon Go during this period, Netflix Party, which lets you watch Netflix together with your loved ones, in separate rooms, is the way to go for most people, and we can show you how to join in the fun.
If you are not aware, there is a Google Chrome extension that lets you do just that, and it will all go down in a group chat that will not compel you and your friends to be in the same physical space. Netflix Party is an easy-to-use extension that allows you and your buddies to catch up on what’s happening in your lives within a useful chatroom.
If you prefer not to use the text chat and decide to go for a video or voice call using any app of your choice, Netflix Party can also sync up what you are watching for everyone using a link. If you have ever attempted coordinating a virtual watch party, you will know that counting down and pressing play simultaneously can be tiring.

2. Choose Movie/TV Series
When Netflix Party has been installed, go to Netflix and choose the movie or TV series you wish to play, then tap “NP” in your browser, to the right of the address bar. Right there, you can begin the party and generate a particular Netflix Party URL to copy and paste to friends. You can also select whether you have exclusive access to playing, pausing, and editing options in the film, or if other viewers can as well. Do not forget, Netflix Party syncs up the film for everybody, therefore if you pause the film and you are hosting the party, it will pause for your buddies as well.

Another problem with Netflix Party is finding out how to exit. There is no button in the chat section to make this happen. However, do not worry, because we have the solution. Just exit the movie, and that will be all. The most obvious answer is actually the right one.
