The outbreak of novel coronavirus and the social distancing guidelines being followed has forced us all to give up on our group activities and socialising. But there is a way to do it virtually now, with this new feature on Netflix — ‘Netflix Party ’extension available on Google Chrome.

The videos are synchronised across users, and has a chat option on the screen for everyone to share their thoughts and react in real time. It’s the perfect way to binge watch all your favourite shows and movies together. The host of the party controls the viewing and can pause, play, rewind and forward the movie for everyone else. It can add over 5,00,000 people at a time but the feature works only on laptops and desktops.
