Sick! Netflix Party lets friends have movie nights while social distancing  Photograph

Quarantine and chill?

Just because you're social distancing in response to coronavirus doesn't mean you and your friends have can't still have fun. Thanks to a Google Chrome extension called Netflix Party, groups of friends can get together virtually and watch their favourite Netflix titles on their computers at the same time. The extension also comes with a chat room, so you can share your reactions to the programs as you watch.

In order to participate, all you need is a Google Chrome browser, the extension and a Netflix subscription. Here's how it works:

Go to netflixparty.com on a Google Chrome browser and click "Get Netflix Party for free!" This will redirect you to Netflix Party's page on the chrome web store!

Personally, I think Netflix's marketing strategy is A.1!
