Quarantine just got a little more social

Quarantine left you feeling lonely? Sick of watching movies by yourself every day? Netflix has a novel solution to let you make watch parties around the world with your best buds: the new Netflix Party feature. If you have a Netflix account, this function is free! See movies together while still obeying isolation laws during the worldwide CoVid-19 pandemic.

Here’s how to set up a free watch party on Netflix:

First, make sure both you and your watching friends have individual Netflix accounts. If you’ve been dithering over whether to sign up or keep Netflix, here’s something to consider.

  1. Go to netlixparty.com on Google Chrome and click on the button saying “get Netlix Party for free.”
  2. Click on Add to Chrome, then Add Extension.
  3. Make sure each member of your watch party also does these steps.
  4. Go to Netflix and choose a show. This includes movies, TV episodes, documentaries, and anything else on their playlists.
  5. Find the NP button now on your desktop.
  6. Go back to Netflix and start your show.
  7. Click Start Party.
  8. Share the Party URL to your fellow movie watchers, and you’re ready to go.
  9. Choose a user icon and nickname so you can chat/make comments as you watch. You can upload screenshots, emojis and GIFs to the chat, too.

The Google Chrome extension synchronizes playback among party members, so if one person pauses the screen, all screens will pause. This way, you can all go RunPee together! (No Peetimes necessary.)
