Netflix Party will cut down the distance between you and your friends. Nobody is in town and you feel lonely, this is not an issue anymore! You can still watch a movie together and have a group chat with the Chrome extension Netflix Party. It allows you to remotely watch, synchronize the movie and chat.

This is super useful for long distance relationships/friendships even remote workers that maybe want to watch "Glengarry Glen Ross" for the 1,500th time for 'team building'... Love the non-tracking, but chat or connecting to slack or something would be useful. Looks like it was a 'weekend project' hackthon. Further development likely?

Can’t wait to try this out, Stephan! For those who haven’t heard of it, https://rabb.it takes a different approach to this problem using a shared virtual machine. So it works with any video service as well as any other co-browsing experience, e.g. group online shopping.
This feature used to be built into Netflix on Xbox live. I gained a best friend as a result. Then all of a sudden it was taken away for no reason. Such a shame. With the voice chat function on Xbox live it was the most fun way to watch Netflix. I'm glad this feature was resurrected on the web.
You know what would be cool? The ability to get on a video call straight from Netflix as well!
