As India starts getting used to the 21-day lockdown due to the Coronavirus, more people are using the internet and consuming content way more than usual. As companies rush to prevent any major issues with internet service, a large portion of the population is now online and working from home. And, because of social distancing and isolation, people are turning to the internet for some kind of solace. Well, worry not as we’re going to help you with that. We at Digit thought long and hard about what you could do with your friends online, apart from gaming, of course, and we thought that you guys might like to maybe catch a movie together with your friends. So, with that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of software that you and your friends can use to watch a film together, online. Here we go. 

Just a note, streaming platforms like Netflix and Prime Video can be watched simultaneously by synching up the streams and using third-party apps. But, we’re here to give you the best tools that you can use to watch a movie online with your friends. 


This versatile tool is compatible with Prime Video, HBO, Vimeo and even Youtube. Installed through Firefox and Chrome extensions, the program offers text chatting and video calling features as well. You may need to pay a little to access all the full features but the free version isn’t all bad either. You can download the software here

Netflix Party:

Native to Netflix, Netflix Party is a little limited in its feature set but can be installed on the Chrome extension. It’s easy to use and set up and you have access to all of Netflix’s content for your viewing pleasure. It’s also free to download on the Chrome Web Store. You can synchronise video playback and use a chat box to talk to whoever you’re watching a film with. Netflix Party does not support video chat though. You can download the tool here. 


The first thing you need to know about Metastream is that it's free! But, the software is still in the developmental stage so it’s not as functional as you may expect, but it does the job.It is compatible with Netflix, Youtube and even Twitch. You can download the tool through the Firefox and Chrome extensions. Check out Metastream here

So, what are you guys waiting for? Call a pal and start watching your favourite films together online.
