If you listen to The Bobby Bones Show on Kickin' 100.5 you know that they work hard trying to keep up with 'what's going on and talking about relevant topics in our lives.'  Here's a social distancing idea you might want to consider as heard on The Bobby Bones Show on Kickin' 100.5!

Many people across the world are practicing social distancing and/or self-quarantine amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

Now, thanks to "Netflix Party," a browser extension, you can binge-watch Netflix shows and movies with your friends without being in the same room as them. Not only can you watch the same things, but you can also message with them about what you are all are watching in real-time.

So if you're up for something a little different, but will help with passing time, here's what you have to do:

  • Download the extension (for our example we're going to use the Google Chrome extension called "Netflix Party")
  • A person chooses a program to stream
  • That person then sends a link to their friends (who must also have the extension), inviting them to watch the program at the same time
  • And then it's happy viewing! You can also type messages to one another while watching

While the Netflix extension has existed for years, it recently received an update that added seven extra servers, Business Insider reports. (Talk about perfect timing!)
