Organize Netflix remote parties and synchronize video playback on multiple computers with the help of this useful Chrome extension
With its unequivocal convenience alongside a huge movie database and, not to mention, the overall coolness factor, there is no doubt that Netflix is slowly but surely becoming a bigger part of our lives.
If you want to organize remote Netflix parties with your friends from other countries or if you are currently involved in a long-distance relationship and Netflix movie nights are one of those things that make you feel closer together, then you should definitely check out Teleparty.
Watch online movies with your long-distance friends in perfect sync
Teleparty is a server-client Chrome extension that synchronizes video playback on multiple computers. In a few words, you can play, pause or control the playback state and position of your Netflix videos while being reassured that the video is synchronized at the other end. Additional platforms are supported, such as HBO, Hulu, or Disney Plus.
Of course, in order to take advantage of Teleparty, you need to make sure that Google Chrome is installed on your computer and you have a valid streaming account. Once you have logged-in using your credentials, you can effortlessly create new sessions or join already existing ones by clicking the extension button.
Effortless connection process
Working with Teleparty is as simple as you can imagine, with you only having to share the Session ID with your friend or join an already existing session with the provided ID, depending on who is hosting the session.
Sure, seeking or adjusting the playback position might be preceded by a couple of seconds of buffering time, but that is hardly an inconvenience considering the result.
Tools like Teleparty can make you feel a bit closer to people you care about
Taking all of the above into consideration, while it may be just a small Chrome extension at its core, Teleparty might turn out to be one of the most useful tools for connecting friends or loved ones across long distances by synchronizing Netflix video playback on multiple computers.
