Install Showgoers

for Chrome

Congrats!

You've successfully installed the extension. To start a watching party, navigate to a Netflix movie and hover over the glasses.

If your Netflix player looks different and your glasses aren't showing up, fear not!. You've been added to Netflix's test group for the new player. As a quick fix, opt out of test participation

Showgoers is a Chrome Extension that lets you watch Netflix with your friends online and interact while you watch. Starting a watching party is simple and inviting others is as easy as sharing a URL.

When you're in a Showgoers watching party, clicking play/pause or seeking to a specific spot in the movie will cause the Netflix player of everyone else in the watching party to do the same thing.

Don’t have enough friends with Netflix? No problem. Join one of our publicly watching parties and watch a movie or show with other people who share the same taste in movies. See what parties are available here.

See it in action!

How does this work?

1
Have a valid Netflix account

To join a watching party you must have access to that movie in the first place. This also means that you can’t be blocked from watching the movie of the watching party due to regional restrictions.

2
Install the Chrome extension

Showgoers manages the watching parties by using a browser extension. Currently we support only Chrome but hopefully soon we’ll support others.
