You Can Now Netflix and Chill (or Party) With Your Long Distance Friends
If you were planning on getting your #girlsquad together for a Gilmore Girls binge-watching party (and how can you not be with these super exciting hints and pics being dropped), but felt bad that a few long-distance buds wouldn’t be able to attend, we have the perfect solution for you! Forget Netflix and chill. It’s time to Netflix and party!
A new Chrome extension (not coming from Netflix itself, but instead “Made with ♡ by Stephan”) will allow to you watch your fave movie with your bestie even if the two of you are miles apart. The website explains, “Netflix Party is a Chrome extension for watching Netflix remotely with friends, e.g., for movie nights with that long-distance special someone. It synchronizes video playback and adds group chat.”
If this piques your TV-lovin’ interest, the directions are as follows: Step 1) Install Netflix Party. Step 2) Open a video in Netflix. Step 3) Start or join a Netflix Party. Whoa, can you handle that?! If so, head over to Netflix Party, grab yourself the extension and get that party started.
