Netflix Party to synchronize and discuss series and movies with friends
Probably one of the most interesting extensions. Netflix Party is a Google Chrome extension that, as the name suggests, allows us to create "movie theaters" to watch series and movies with other participants remotely and in sync .
The extension also includes its own chat system with which we can comment on the works in real time . The operation of the tool is, in fact, very simple. We will only have to access a certain series, film or documentary and click on the button that the extension enables on the taskbar.
Then a link will be generated that we will later share with other people. Automatically a private room will be created where we can reproduce the chapters in a synchronized way along with a chat.

NflxMultiSubs to configure subtitles to our liking
Netflix Multiple Subtitles is an extension that not only adds subtitles in practically any language, it also allows us to customize their size, font and position within the playback interface .
The operation of the extension is based precisely on adding complementary subtitles to the official Netflix subtitles in case these are not available in our language. Unfortunately the extension may conflict with other extensions, as specified on the developer page.

Film Stack to create series and movie playlists
Netflix natively does not allow you to create playlists of series, movies and documentaries. Film Slack brings this YouTube functionality to Netflix through an extension for Google Chrome with which we can create lists that will automatically play the content when the chapter in question has finished .
Within the extension itself we will be able to alternate between series and movies, search for content and delete it later to sort the lists based on our personal preferences.

Netflix Extended to improve the functions of the Netflix interface
As the name itself anticipates, Netflix Extended extends the functions that the platform presents by default. Among the multitude of functions that the extension includes natively, we can perform actions such as adding custom keyboard commands, skipping introductions and recaps, modifying the playback speed of the videos and changing the jump time between chapters.
In addition to being compatible with Google's Chromecast , Netflix Extended has a section dedicated to criticism and comments whose main source draws from sites like OMDb.
Like other extensions, it can conflict with other Google Chrome add- ons intended to add functionality to Netflix.
