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.
