Netflix is that one-stop streaming center for all your movies, favorite shows, documentaries, and everything you would need for optical-nutrition. At a time when we cannot go to the Cinema to watch our favorite movies with our fellow cinephiles, Netflix party has come up with a catch-up meeting point.

The Netflix party is a free Google chrome extension. It lets you start, pause and stop your Netflix show or movie just to wait on your gang/loved ones so that you can start the party together. This party’s MC is the host who initiates the vibe and holds the virtual remote. This is you, your friend in Malawi, a niece in Western Uganda and I getting together virtually on Netflix to have a blast.
