NETFLIX can sometimes be better when you’re watching with friends but if all your friends live far away then this can be tricky.
However, if you can’t wait for your long-distance Netflix partner to get back before you watch another episode then use the following trick to watch it at the same time but in different locations.
Netflix Rabbit allows you to watch popular shows like Stranger Things with your faraway friends
Rabbit is a video-chat service that has been specially designed for watching shows with far away friends so you can see their reactions at all times and discuss the plot.
The company launched in 2015 and describes its video-chat platform as “the way to watch anything with anyone.”
Rabbit is a useful alternative to the likes of FaceTime or Skype because it allows you to launch a window that can be viewed by all parties, including a tab with Netflix on it.
This means that you and your friends can stream your favourite shows and movies together and message at the same time.
You could watch House of Cards without waiting to be in the same country as your Netflix partner
Rabbit works no matter where you are, whether that be in a different city or country.
It currently has 3.6 million monthly unique users around the World.
Rabbit says: “Rabbit users are some of the most active on any web or mobile app: they watch for an average of 12.5 hours a month, and the most active users watch for 28.5 hours a month.
“The majority of Rabbit users watch on mobile and are under the age of 30 years old.”
You can download Rabbit for free and then click the Rabbit extension icon, then “Start Sharing”
