Since most of us are stuck at homes and are practising social distancing these days, Netflix Party might be just what you need right now.
Netflix now allows its users to host or join Netflix Party where you can have movie sessions with your friends and family. You can add up to 5,00,000 users at a time but it will only work in Google Chrome that too just on PCs or laptops.
You can even chat while watching movies or show. The host will have an option to have all the controls of the ongoing movie to themselves. Whoever has the control can pause, play, forward the ongoing movie and the same will happen for the others watching it at that time.
