Watching Movies While Staying Safe & Socially Distanced

For many people, the pandemic has been an isolating and lonely experience. Most people are used to connecting with friends and family on a regular basis, having parties, watching movies and generally just spending time together. As the pandemic continues to impact our daily lives, it is becoming more important to make connections in other ways. Today, Chipheads Computer Repair in Richfield, MN is discussing ways you can safely watch movies with friends and family while remaining socially distanced.

Teleparty, formally known as Netflix Party is a Google Chrome browser extension that allows people to sync a specific movie or show on Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, HBO, etc. while chatting with others. No more trying to start the video at the exact same time and hope that it actually works for everyone. All you need to do is install Google Chrome along with the Teleparty extension, create your viewing party and invite those you would like to join.


While Discord isn’t specifically made to watch movies together with others, the functionality still exists. Discord is a program/application that allows users to join different servers to communicate with others via text, voice and video chat. One of the features available is the ability to share your screen and audio with others. This allows one user to open a movie or show (not limited to any specific service) and share it with others. While watching, everyone can either voice chat or type to chat.


Zoom is another program that became extremely popular as a form of communication when the pandemic first began. Similar to Discord, Zoom allows users to communicate via text, voice or video. Screen sharing is also possible with Zoom, allowing a user to share their screen (a TV show, movie or even games) with others.
