If the coronavirus is putting a damper on your late-night Netflix and chill session, you might be in luck.
Thanks to a Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party, friends can now virtually get together and watch their favorite Netflix shows and movies at the same time.
The extension is an add-on, specifically for Chrome users, that synchronizes video playback to your shows. It also allows friends to talk to each other with a real-time sidebar chart, according to USA Today.
Although the extension has been available for a few years, HYPEBEAST reports that there has been a significant increase in users as health officials urge social distancing due to the coronavirus.
In order to participate, the Netflix Party website gives people the rundown.
All a user needs to do is install the free Google Chrome-exclusive extension on their browser, play a show or movie on Netflix, launch the extension and send the URL to friends or family.
Anyone with a link will be redirected to the streaming service and can tune in from the comfort of their own living rooms.
