The coronavirus is keeping us all isolated indoors, but there are plenty of social activities you can do from the comfort of your own home. A Google Chrome extension lets you stream Netflix TV shows and movies with your friends and fam, giving us all some much-needed hangout time as we stream the utter embarrassment parade that is Love Is Blind. Here's the details on how to get started with your online group binge-fest.


Netflix Party is a *free* Google Chrome extension for multi-viewing.

In order to stream with your squad, you'll need to use Google's Chrome browser (if you don't have it, you can download it for free here). 

Next, you'll need to to install the Netflix Party extension into your Google browser. Thankfully, it's a free download, but you can throw them a few bucks on Patreon if you want to show your support.


Here's how to get the party going.

Once you've installed the extension, you'll notice an NP button in your browser. Open Netflix, click the button, and it will generate an invite link for you to send to your pals. You can invite as many people as you like!


How does it work?

The extensions turns your Netflix viewing experience into a chatroom. For everyone in the room, their Netflix viewing is synced up, so everyone is watching the same thing at the same time. On the side of the video, you'll find a chat box, where you all can discuss Eleven's new hairstyle.


Need some viewing inspiration? Allow me to recommend...

Have you watched Cheer? You must watch Cheer. This is not up for debate. Netflix's documentary miniseries about collegiate cheer athletics is so compelling, it will change everything you think you know about cheerleaders; you'll also fall in love with the athletes.


Abducted in Plain Sight

OOOOOOOH MY GOD THIS DOCUMENTARY. It goes from zero to 10 real quick. This true-crime documentary is truly one of the most bizarre stories you've ever heard. I say that without exaggeration. It follows the story of a young teen who is abducted by a family friend, but that's not even the the craziest part of the story. I don't want to spoil it for you, but please, watch this movie and nothing will ever be same.
