With loads of people practicing self-isolation or social distancing, it makes it pretty hard to have a decent movie night with your mates. Until now...

Thanks to a Google Chrome extension that’s gone viral, movie night with your mates is officially back on! 'Netflix Party' allows multiple people to remotely watch a Netflix program and chat at the same time.

The extension is free to download via a link on the Netflix Party website. Once you and your friends have it, all you need to do is choose any Netflix program, click the Netflix Party icon and send the generated link to those who want to watch.
