A nine-day design challenge, teams were asked to create a feature boosting social interaction between Netflix members. The sprint went from research and ideation to high fidelity mockups and a final interactive prototype.
Appropriating elements from Google Hangout, the Screening Room is a virtual movie theater where Netflix members can stream titles together remotely. Not only can they share playback controls, but they also have the option to socialize via on-screen text and video chat. Last but not least, they can send the chat to a secondary device (such as a cell phone).
