While this would usually call for some Netflix and chilling, this time a lot of us are doing it solo.

To join, you will need to go to www.netflixparty.com from your Google Chrome browser and click "Get Netflix Party for free!" Netflix representatives are urged not to try to troubleshoot it or to attempt to answer questions about it. The extension is only available with the Google Chrome browser on desktop or laptop computers, so, unfortunately, you can't use the function on your smart TV. Luckily, there's a new solution that just saved movie nights: Netflix Party.

This part is easy. Can you get and use Netflix Party on iPhone and Android mobile devices, though?

Browse Netflix for your favorite movies and shows. Choose any show you would like to watch and start playing the video. Once you and all you're social distancing buddies have it, all you gotta do is select the movie, or Netflix show, click the Netflix Party icon and send out the link that is generated those who want to tune in.

When you click on the Netflix Party extension, it will give you the option of being the only person with control over the player - meaning only you can rewind, forward, or add subtitles to the video. Then click "Start Party" to get the party started, and share the party URL to invite friends. Check the box that reads "Show chat" so you can live chat as you watch your show/movie.

Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro will get Android 10 in April month
The Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Guru have 20MP front-facing cameras which is a resolution for your snapper, though we've seen. The Mi 10 Professional might be made obtainable with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage for Euro 999 (roughly Rs 83,500).

Then copy the URL and share it with your friends.

If you're home-working or self-isolating because of COVID-19, you might be starting to feel a little lonely.

According to the extension, turning off your Netflix Test Participation Settings will also give you a better experience.

To join a party click on the party URL, which will redirect to Netflix's website. The "hack" allows for multiple people to connect and remotely watch Netlfix programming while having chat conversations.
