This tutorial explains how to play Netflix in frameless window on PC. Generally, in order to watch Netflix on PC, we either have to use the Netflix web player in a web browser or the Netflix desktop app. And, it is nice as long as you don’t have to do anything simultaneously. Because, if you do anything else on the PC, the player window would be overlapped and it won’t be the same experience.
But, if you can play Netflix in a frameless window that always stays at the top, that would be nice, right? So, here I have compiled a list of 4 free Chrome extensions that let you play Netflix in a frameless window. These extensions open the Netflix in a floating window which you can drag and drop anywhere on your screen and resize it accordingly. This way, you can enjoy your favorite Netflix show while doing other tasks simultaneously.
