  • The sixth season shakes things up: Chandler and Monica move in together, and Rachel and Ross are married — sort of. They wed on a lark in Las Vegas, but when Rachel demands an annulment, Ross claims he got one. Rachel moves in with Phoebe, but finds they have different styles. And Joey can't find acting work, so he ends up with a gig at the gang's favorite coffee shop, Central Perk.

Sharing Netflix. Interested in saving some money by sharing your Netflix account with your friends.

Amazon isn't one to let Netflix Party have all the fun. The company just announced a new service for your next binge watch with friends: Amazon Prime Video Watch Party. You can use it to watch hundreds of movies and shows from Amazon's catalog while chatting with up to 100 friends, no plugin or download required.

Amazon started rolling out the Watch Party feature to Prime subscribers in the US in June. For now, the feature is available on almost all desktop browsers, except for Apple's Safari. Smart TVs, game consoles, mobile phones and tablets aren't currently supported.

Virtual watch parties through Netflix and YouTube have been a boon for many during coronaviruslockdowns, giving friends and family a way to connect and socialize (and an excuse to order that wine or beer delivery). Even though many states have begun opening up, movie theaters and other places you may have gone to for fun are still closed, or open only with sizable restrictions -- making virtual watch parties a new mainstay.

To use the Watch Party feature, everyone needs access to Amazon Prime. A Prime Video account costs $9 a month for a standalone subscription or comes as part of the $119 annual Prime membership. You have to be in the US to use the service.

If your friends don't have Prime, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial for a subscription, just make sure they cancel before the month is up if they don't want to get automatically charged for the next month. You can also share your account with one other person, such as a family member, for two simultaneous streams.
