Tip: organize a digital movie night with friends via Netflix Party

Now that everyone is confined to their home, you have a lot less social contacts. Do you still want to do something fun with friends? With Netflix Party, you can organize a movie night without anyone leaving home. That is how it works.

This is how Netflix Party works

Watching old-fashioned TV with friends is now also possible digitally. Netflix Party adds a chat screen while streaming. It is currently only a Chrome extension, so if you have a MacBook it is important that you use first download Google Chrome. This is how you set it up:

  1. Open Google Chrome and download Netflix Party;
  2. Start Netflix in your Chrome browser and choose the movie or series you want to watch;
  3. Click on the POI icon in the top right to start a party;
  4. Copy the link and share it with your friends, so that they end up in the same chat screen.

It is important that everyone has downloaded the Chrome extension. In chat, you and your friends can talk about the movie – or anything and everything. Moreover, the film or series automatically synchronizes, so that it can be played for everyone at the same time. If someone pauses or rewinds the film or series, that will happen to everyone. This way you can be sure that you are all at the same part in the film at the same time. You can also choose that only one person has control over the playback of the film or series.
