Over the years, television has become more of a solo activity than ever before. It's exponentially harder to discuss the latest shows with friends because platforms like Netflix release all the episodes at once. Fortunately, Snapchat makes it easy to keep your friends up to date so they can pick up the remote and do the same.
Many of us already do this without thinking. Do you ever take a photo or video from your TV or computer, with a hilarious scene from The Office or a stunning moment in Our Planet ? The only problem with this method is that your friends can not easily access the content you share on their own Netflix account. So skip the camera and use Netflix's built-in tool to share your favorite titles for a Snapchat story.
Sharing your last binge in your story is actually pretty straightforward. First, just select the show or movie you want to share through the Netflix browser in their Android or iOS app. Fight the temptation to watch the show or movie immediately because you can not directly share it with the Netflix player itself. Instead, tap the Share icon below the description of the content. This will display a menu of all apps and services for which you can share your selections. In our case choose "Snapchat".
Your phone may ask you whether you want to open Snapchat at this time. Select the option that opens the app. After opening Snapchat, the title image of your show or movie will be displayed in the story editor, including all the tools you would normally find here (text, drawing, sticker, editing, etc.). The URL option is highlighted because your story has a direct hyperlink to the Netflix show or movie that you share.
Make the desired changes to your story to personalize it for you. Then tap the story icon at the bottom of the screen, tap Add when prompted, and then tap My Story in the list. Alternatively, tap the blue arrow and then select "My Story" from the list of options.
Now your friends just have to tap on your story to see what you've just watched! If you are also interested in giving your show a clock, you can follow the link embedded in your story. When Netflix is installed on your device, you will be prompted to open the app and view the title. If not, they will simply be directed to the Netflix website.
