Is there a Netflix Original film or series that you want to see with a friend but distance hinders you? If your answer is yes, then Netflix Party has got you covered.
The pandemic made a lot of activities and events go virtual. People worked from home, schooled from home, even attended their graduation ceremony from the comfort of their homes. The film industry was not left out in all of this.
Since people could not go to the cinemas to see movies, a lot of people substituted for streaming services such as Netflix. In this article, we will show you an easy way you can watch your favourite Netflix movies and series with your friends even while you are miles apart.
What Is Netflix Party (Teleparty) and How To Use It
Netflix Party (now called Teleparty) is a Chrome extension that enables you to watch original Netflix content with friends and loved ones and engage in conversations while the film plays. So in a way, it gives the feeling that you are all watching together.
Teleparty synchronizes video playback and adds group chat to not just Netflix, but also Disney, Hulu and HBO. So you can use it with those other video streaming services too.
Using the Netflix Party application is easy. Simply follow the guidelines listed below, and you will be on your way to “Netflix and chilling” with your best buddies.
- To use Netflix Party, first ensure that you have an active Netflix account and subscription.
- Now install the Chrome extension on your web browser.
- Open the Netflix web app and select the film you wish to watch.
- Click on the extension icon and start the party.
- Copy the Netflix Party link and share it with your friends.
There are no limits to the number of people that can join the party, so you can share the link with a lot of people. You can also chat during the film by using the chat feature on the extension. As a host, you can only create a Netflix party from your web browser, not the mobile application, and whoever joins does so from the web.
So, grab yourself some popcorn, pick a film, share a link and have a great time with your family and friends.
PS: Netflix Party is now called Teleparty, and is available on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome for desktop or laptop computers.
