Netflix Party is a smart Chrome extension module that permits users to live chat with friends and family as they watch a similar TV show or film in real time. The application itself works simply like Twitch stream or Discord.
It also displays streams of text comments from friends along with emojis right next to the streaming video.
This new technology is great as due to the current situation in the world, where the COVID-19 pandemic has forced everyone to stay home, which sometimes can make you feel super lonely but with Netflix Party this period of self-quarantine can become better.
