- (2020-04-16) Bella Mcdulin: This was an amazing extension!!! I can do this with my best friend during quarantine and it works perfectly fine for us! The only down part about it is that we have to type in the whole entire link for us to be able to do it with each other, but it really does not matter because at least we get to chat and watch the same exact thing! So I would 100% recommend.
- (2020-04-16) Stephanie Flannery: this extension is super awesome. if you have a friend who lives far from you i would recommend this because you can watch the same movie and chat at the same time. some people might not like it because some people might chat through the whole movie (like me) but i still watch the movie as i chat. you can also use emojis (like any other device). i would 10/10 download this because its just soo good to keep in touch with friend/family but also have fun.
- (2020-04-16) Marlena: Ludzie zrozumcie,żeby to działało trzeba najpierw wybrać film/serial i wejść w jakiś odc i dopiero wtedy zmieni sie kolor znaczka NP i wtedy można wysłać link
- (2020-04-16) Kevin LaGrange: worked great just follow the directions
- (2020-04-16) Hailey Clark: Loved this extension at first but had someone that was UNINVITED show up in the chat of me and my boyfriends private netflix party. I don't know if this is because of hacking or what it is but I need answers, especially for the safety of others to prevent possible hacking to there netflix account, netflix party, or even personal information. Has this situation happened to any other people??? If anyone has experienced this or has any idea of why this happened please reply, Thank You.

- (2020-04-16) Luke Ordille: doesnt work lame. Trying to have a date with my GIRLFRIEND but it doesnt even work. Now our relationship is at its breaking point.
- (2020-04-16) Enrique García-Rivera: Useless. By the time most people get it to work you've lost interest.
- (2020-04-15) Daniel Carlos: Funciona de maravilla. Lo tengo instalado en Microsoft edge y ningún problema. Los que dan calificación baja es porque no entienden como usarlo aunque sea simple.
- (2020-04-15) Estelle Eghan: Initially, hearing about Netflix party I thought that there would be an option to video chat with my friends whilst watching to get a cinema experience. Unfortunately, there wasn't. I'm quite disappointed no wonder it was free.
- (2020-04-15) Inês Veiga: funciona super bem! é só seguir as instruções.
- (2020-04-15) Monet Thibou: It's great!! you can watch things with your friends at the same time and make comments in the chatroom. IT'S GREAT.
- (2020-04-15) Maria Abbatiello: We tried using the extension for a Netflix party for my daughters class. When you download the extension, it appears on the chrome bookmarks. When you click on it, nothing happens. It brings you back to the google play store.

- (2020-04-15) Sienna Hackworthy: doesnt work
- (2020-04-15) Saim Ch: some days please open its site
- (2020-04-15) Niklas Rossberg: Funktioniert nicht
- (2020-04-15) Giorgia Gregorutti: I don't really know what's wrong with it, probably I'm doing something to not make it work, but it won't install. Like, it remains grey in the side of the links bar without getting red and working
- (2020-04-15) Hatem Huzefa: i would just use the normal one
- (2020-04-15) eddy alberto gomez flores: Hermoso
- (2020-04-15) Nicole: My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship and use this to get in quality movie time! I love it! It's tricky to use at first though. One person needs to play a movie, click on the NP icon at the top of the page, and copy the link. I send the link through email, that works the easiest for me. Then my boyfriend will click the link in the email I sent and as quickly as possible, click the NP icon at the top of the page so that when the page loads, he will be in the party and then you can play the movie and chat all night long! Hope these directions help!
