In this tutorial, I will show you how to watch Netflix remotely with friends during lockdown. Its a tough time going on where more than half of the world is locked. People are not allowed to go out. Socializing is not allowed and if you do then there are heavy penalties. As a responsible citizen, you should also avoid going out and hanging out with friends. Just stay home to keep yourself, your family and your friends safe.
However, you can socialize with your friends over internet while watching the Netflix. I have listed few ways to do so on computer and smartphones.
- You and your friend(s) must have Netflix account.
Watch Netflix Remotely with Friends in PC
1. Using Netflix Party Extension for Chromium Browsers
This extension is available for free on Google Web Store and you can install it for your Chromium browser, like Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. The extension comes with heaps of useful features.

2. Using Desktop Sharing Apps
Another way to watch Netflix with friends is, you can share your desktop screen with your friend using apps like Team Viewer, Ammyy Admin, etc. There are few benefits of watching Netflix over desktop sharing. Such as, only one person needs Netflix account and he can share his screen with friends. You can talk and chat as well because some software like Team Viewer gives these features. However, there are some issues as well doing this. The main person (Who streaming Netflix and sharing screen) needs very good internet connection. Reason, because firstly streaming Netflix in HD taking heaps of bandwidth then sharing screen in HD will also take the tons of data. Same, friends also need to have a good internet connection to watch the screen without any trouble.
Some of the Desktop Sharing Apps are listed below:
- Team Viewer
- Ammyy Admin
- Cybele Soft
- Chrome Remote Desktop
