Having a Netflix viewing party with your friends and loved ones is the perfect way to form a stronger bond with them, especially if you are all homebodies and want to find a way to bond without the comforts of your own home having to leave. After all, watching movies or a TV show together is the perfect way to kick back and relax, and there’s nothing better than doing that with the ones you love.
Luckily, hosting a Netflix viewing party is super easy. All you need to do is download the Netflix Party extension on your devices and voila! From there you can watch everything on the streaming platform with a group. Anytime someone pauses the content, the same thing is done on everyone else’s devices. In addition, there is a chat bar on the side to discuss with your loved ones what is happening in the show or movie. It’s so much fun!
