Several years ago, Xbox 360 owners could watch their favorite Netflix movies remotely with friends and synchronize video playback. This feature is no longer available but this doesn’t stop fans from dreaming the Netflix party mode could make a return on their consoles.

If you own an Xbox One console and you too want this feature back, you can upvote it on the Xbox User Voice website. The request already has more than 7,000 votes and counting. It was posted almost two years ago, but unfortunately it has so far fallen on deaf ears.

The Netflix party mode was one of those features only Xbox owners had. This option had a big social value, connecting Xbox users and allowing them to share common experiences.

Since the party mode is no longer available, user have found various ways to mimic the feature. The most common strategy is to pause the content at the same time. After some practice, this method works very well, as users confirm. The only problem is when somebody needs buffering.

Holy **** I’m glad I’m not the only one! A few friends and I actually got it down so good that even when we’d pause all at once, we’d all end up at the exact time. Took us a month but after that we would always get it on the dot!

Other users are putting all their hopes in the upcoming Project Scorpio, suggesting that the Netflix party mode could make a return on this console.

When Scorpio is released with a vr headset  I wouldn’t be surprised if this made a return.  As an oculus rift owner it’s so much fun
watching movies with friends like they are  actually there with you! If netflix don’t  release this feature I’m sure xbox video will.

As a quick reminder, the Netflix party mode was removed back in 2011, but the fact that users are still longing for this feature 5 years after it was removed stands proof for its popularity and usefulness.

What’s your take on this? Do you think the Netflix party mode could ever make a return to the Xbox ecosystem?
