During quarantine, we’re all just craving human connection. We miss movie nights with our friends. Which is why people were so excited when Google Chrome launched their Netflix Party extension. Hulu said, I’ll do you one better.
They’ve launched a native Hulu Watch Party Platform that allows up to 8 people with Hulu (no ads) subscriptions to watch in the same “room.” There’s also a chat so you can discuss the movie or show you’re enjoying.
This will be especially helpful as people are still largely stuck in the house most of the time, but I can see a lot of value even as people begin to get out in the world again. People in long-distance relationships and friendships, families separated by geography. Movie nights are definitely beloved quarantine or not.
