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, 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!

Is this any different from Showgoers ( ?

@sarthakgrover I think Showgoers has a chat feature that NP doesn't have, though NP will probably have chat in the near future too. Another small difference between NP and Showgoers is that NP can't spy on your Netflix activity when you're not using it, because it doesn't request that permission.

@stephantasia Cool, I'll try it out, just waiting on my 2nd Chromecast to be delivered since I need to source my video and audio separately. Any thoughts on being able to extend this to sync local media playback as well?

Can't wait to try this with my friends around the world!
This is awesome. I'd love to see it spread to other video platforms, specifically YouTube. There used to be tools that do this, but I don't know of any that are still online. A little annoying to coordinate "OK, press go in 3, 2, 1..." with others when sharing a video.

Couldn't figure out how to activate it...

This is so great. I'll have to share with friends/family who are involved in long distance friendships and relationships.

Sharing this right away. Too bad it does not (yet) have like a voice chat function, I wouldn't want to type.

Brilliant. I live in Montana and my girlfriend is in Northwest Arkansas -- wish we would've found this months ago! Great work.
