Netflix Party is basically software that utilizes a client-server model. The client connects to the server and playback synchronization state happens. Node.js is utilized because of the low-latency factor and the fact that numerous clients can connect to a server at the same time. Also, sessions that are idle for one hour are automatically closed.
Obviously, you need to have a Netflix account in order to use this extension and you have to be logged in. After you log in, you can create a watch session or join an existing one. You just need to use a session ID for that.
Playback control happens as you are used to. The playback buttons are actually simulated by the program and the software is highly intuitive.
On the whole, if you want to watch Netflix movies with friends at a distance, especially during COVID-19 times, this extension gets the job done right.
