Everyone with a Netflix subscription knows the drill when it comes to picking a new show to watch. You scroll through the new release, trending, and recommended sections, and still end up watching ‘Friends’ from beginning to end.
With Scener, you can jump into a group chat with your friends, and decide what to watch together. Use our text chat to talk about what to watch next. Once you agree on something, jump into a Scene together to video chat while you watch, or if you don’t feel like being that social, just keep hanging out in your group text thread, and watch together from there.
Scener lets you keep movie night going – no matter where you are. For years, people have been trying to find ways to co-watch shows and movies on Netflix when they aren’t together. With Scener, you can watch together from anywhere in the world without the hassle.
Watch while video chatting with that special someone, or link up with a big group of friends for a watch party. Watch your favorite episodes of ‘The Office’ together, and try to beat Michael Scott to the punch-line of every ‘That’s what she said!’ joke.
Great shows and movies bring people together, and coming together over Netflix has never been easier. Scener makes watching together more convenient and fun than ever before. To get started, download our FREE Chrome Extension!
That’s where we come in. Scener lets you sync Netflix with friends, so you don’t have to be in the same room to watch your shows together. When you join a friend’s scene, you will automatically be synced up to their Netflix timeline, so you can watch exactly what they’re watching – seamlessly matched to the second.
You’re watching Netflix. Your friends are watching Netflix. You should be watching Netflix with your friends. Now you can watch Netflix in real-time with anyone, anytime, anywhere using Scener.
Our exciting and easy-to-use platform allows you to add sync and chat to Netflix, so you can experience your favorite shows and movies together from anywhere. With both video and text chat support, you and your friends can hang out however you prefer.
To get started, go to Scener and install the Chrome extension in seconds. Then, go to Netflix, and you’ll see your brand new Scener sidebar. Once you create an account, browse Netflix as normal with your new, convenient sidebar that lets you connect with your friends.
Because Scener is a brand new way to watch Netflix with your friends, we’re continually looking for ways to improve and would love your feedback. If you have any questions, or just want to say “hello”, send us an e-mail at email@example.com.
Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Scener Beta:
To watch with friends on Scener, you’ll need a laptop and headphones.
What are the software requirements?
All you need to get started is a Netflix subscription and the Google Chrome web browser.
What's a Scener Scene?
A Scene is a synced Netflix experience between you and your friends. In a Scene, you can text or video chat with your friends while watching Netflix together in perfect sync.
How do I start a Scene?
From the Scener sidebar, click on the name of a friend or group whom you want to watch with. Click “Watch Together”, and you’re good to go!
How many people can I have in a Scene?
Groups that you create can be as big or as small as you’d like. The more the merrier!
How can we keep the Scene going with the same people and binge more episodes of the show we’re watching?
If you’re looking to watch multiple episodes together, you’ll need to head to the next episode, and start a new Scene each time an episode ends. We are working on features that allow you to binge-watch shows more efficiently, because the only thing that should ever interrupt a good binge is Netflix’s “Are you still watching?” screen.
I have to go to the bathroom! Can I pause the movie for everyone?
The first person to enter a Scene is the Scene leader (as identified by the ‘golden remote’ icon under their video circle). In order to provide the smoothest, most harmonious sync experience, only the Scene leader can control pause/play functions. The Scene leader can pass the remote to whomever they want, by hovering over a friend’s video circle, and choosing the option to pass the remote.
Something seems out-of-sync, what do I do?
The browser refresh button is your best friend. Click it, and see if that does the trick. For best results, we recommend that the Scene leader be the person with the fastest internet connection.
