Netflix is probably the most popular way to enjoy movies and TV shows on the web, for a price, of course. Not only is Netflix attractive, but it is arguably the best when compared to the host of streaming options available. That is why we are going to talk about a Google Chrome extension that goes by the name, Netflix Party. You can watch Netflix together with friends, by using Netflix Party extension for Google Chrome browser, on your Windows PC.
It’s a little thing that allows users to watch video content with friends and others, together at the same time. Basically, the extension synchronizes the video playback with that of multiple computers, so you and another person who might be a million miles away, can enjoy Marvel’s Jessica Jones at the same time.

Long distant relationships can be a tremendous challenge, especially when one person has to be away for months or years at a time. Netflix Party is a tool that can help keep things together.
OK, so we sound too similar to a relationship adviser, so let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.
To get started, you’ll be required to download the Netflix Party extension from the Google Chrome Web Store. Just get over there and search for “Netflix Party” and watch as it pops up in a list of other Netflix related extensions and apps. Once that is all done, visit Netflix on the web, sign in to your account, and the Netflix Party icon should now be visible. From this icon, users can create a session or join a session.
All sessions are private, so there’s no need to worry about anyone on the web finding and joining your session while you’re watching Fifty Shades of Grey. Furthermore, users can control how content is played back, so if anyone wants to pause, play, fast-forward, or rewind, it can be done from the extension.
The downside to this extension is the fact that both each person must be using Google Chrome and the Netflix Party extension for the magic to work. Some web browsers tend not work well when it comes down to video playback for some people, so pray Google Chrome is not one of them.
Overall, we enjoy what Netflix Party brings to the table. It doesn’t come packed with a lot of features, but what it does what it sets out to do, and that is completely fine with us.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in the Caribbean and your other half is somewhere in Russia, Netflix Party will work, and that’s the true beauty of this extension.
