Many of us are facing a long winter indoors thanks to the ongoing pandemic. And while we may have video streaming to distract us, watching TV and movies is more fun with friends. You could get everyone on Zoom and press play at the same time, but there’s an easier way: Teleparty (formerly known as Netflix Party).
This browser extension allows you to invite anyone you want, then syncs the stream between all devices. There’s also a built-in text chat feature so everyone can communicate while the video is playing. The extension works with Netflix, Hulu, Disney , and HBO Max (though Hulu and Disney have their own official watch party features, too). Everyone will need to install the browser extension and have their own streaming subscription to join. Here’s how to get everything set up for your remote viewing party.
