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.
As of March 2019, Version 1.5.6 of Netflix Party is up and running. This week we're launching long parties in version 1.5.2 of Netflix Party for binging entire seasons of Netflix together!
