If you’re missing movie nights with friends during social distancing, Google Chrome and Netflix have a solution. It’s called “Netflix Party.” The Chrome extension allows you to watch and chat with your friends from separate locations. All you have to do is download the extension, start watching a Netflix show, and then click on the “NP” icon on the toolbar. It will give you a web address to send to anyone you want to.
