With Coronavirus shutting down the entire world, forcing us to quarantine ourselves away from our friends, Netflix is doing their part to make sure we stay connected.

For some of us that thrive on social interaction, “Netflix Party” is going to be a life-saver.

Netflix Party is a chrome extension that allows you and your friends to sync up a Netflix stream on multiple computers and then allows a chat space for you and your friends to talk while you watch the movie from the comfort of your own homes.

All you have to do is make sure you and your friends have the extension, start something on Netflix, hit the NP button, and send your friends the URL. Also, make sure you check the “only I have control” box otherwise all your idiots friends will pausing the movie, rewinding stuff… this is your project, you run that thing.

So, quarantine and chill anybody?

Here’s everything new on Netflix this month.
