New Chrome app lets you watch Netflix with friends in different places

Just as most of us are planning to ramp up our viewing considerably

We all deserve a little bit of good news in this strange new era of self-isolation.

Yes, just as most of us are planning to ramp up our Netflix viewing considerably, a new app for Google chrome will allow people to watch content on the world's leading streaming entertainment service with friends.

In the developers' own words, the aptly-named Netflix Party is an extension for "watching Netflix remotely with friends, e.g., for movie nights with that long-distance special someone."

Over 500,000 have already used the extension, which was launched last week. Talk about good timing. Go here to download.

It was recently announced that Andy King, star of Netflix documentary 'Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened', is set to go on a speaking tour of the UK.

Back in January, it was revealed that Sonos was suing Google for allegedly stealing the tech from their smart speakers.
