Now You Can Watch Netflix With a Long-Distance Partner
Watching a show on Netflix when you’re in a long distance relationship is tough. It’s next to impossible to start an episode at the same time, and you can forget trying to chat about a scene without creating unwanted spoilers. But now, a new Chrome extension will make it easy to watch House of Cards with your significant other while they're on the other side of the country. Netflix Party allows viewers to synchronize their Netflix accounts into one viewing window through the popular Google browser.
Just download and install the extension from the Chrome Web Store and click the “NP” icon on your toolbar while you’re watching Netflix. The app will create a shareable link to the streaming video as well as a group chat bar on the right-hand side of the screen for comments. Anyone can join the party, as long as they have a Netflix account and the link. It even gives one user the ability to control the video across all windows.
