How to create a Netflix Watch party to chat and watch with Friends

Netflix is by far the most popular movie streaming service on the Internet to-date. The service has registered bullish spikes in its overall usage during the current COVID19 Pandemic and statistics show sign of continuous growth.

Well, among the Netflix functions you should be using is Watch Parties, the same way they work on Facebook. With Facebook watch party, a user can host a Video to be watched by several other members in a group. Now, Netflix also allows users to watch a movie in groups.

Through the Netflix Party extension, a single user can host a group of other Netflix users to catch a specific movie and live Chat during its stream. In fact, the ability to chat while playing a movie is cooler and can be compared to heading to a movie Cinema with a group of friends.
