Try Netflix Party for All-Around, At-Home Fun

Socializing is part of the human experience — we naturally want to spend time with the people we love and care about. However, socializing in person isn’t always possible. Recently, a free Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party has been getting a lot of attention. It allows you to watch your favorite television shows or movies with your friends when you can’t be together physically. So, don’t wait; set up a time to enjoy some all-around fun from the comfort of your home at Retreat at Seven Bridges!

It’s Netflix Party Time

Netflix Party can be used to watch Netflix together remotely, and it’s easy to use! Simply download the extension onto your Chrome browser, and you can watch videos with anyone, anywhere! The extension automatically synchronizes the playback for everyone watching.

In addition, anyone can start the party by choosing a movie and sharing a custom link. As to who controls the remote, the group leader can choose to lead in this matter or allow any group member to pause, fast forward, rewind, or hit the playback button. This means you’ll always be watching the same scene at the same time. 

In addition, Netflix Party integrates a group chat feature into the sidebar, complete with avatars and other customizable options. This will let you discuss what’s happening in the movie, crack jokes, or simply chat about what’s on your mind, just as if your friends were right next to you. Although Netflix Party was released a few years ago, it’s recently seen a resurgence in popularity.

Technology Saves The Day

It’s a challenge to connect with friends and family in the era of social distancing. However, technology comes to the rescue again. Netflix Party is something you can look forward to in the evening. Keep up with your favorite shows without sacrificing your social life.

All in all, Netflix Party is a great way to have fun with friends, even when you can’t meet.
