insights while watching Netflix shows.
Wiretap is easy to get.
it from the Google Store.
Wiretap works in your Chrome browser on a laptop or desktop.
Sorry, there’s no mobile version...yet. Along with Chrome, you
need to have Netflix and Facebook accounts.
and installing the Wiretap extension, you need to open Netflix
and sign in. You’ll be prompted to Connect with Facebook.
Click the button and you can get wiretapping.
So you know, the group of comments you see on the right side
of your screen are---as we like to call them---the comment
stream. Your comment stream gets more personalized the more
you use Wiretap. Here’s how. You’ll always see comments made
by your friends and the people you choose to follow. Upvote
comments that you like so that
everyone sees them. You’ll also see some of the most upvoted
comments from other fans too. And maybe a few guest stars. As
more fans join in, the social experience will keep getting
Watching and commenting on shows
We like that question. Get this - any Netflix show can be
wiretapped. Of course, not all of them are...just yet. So
don’t be shy. Be the first to comment on any show you want.
To see what shows people are wiretapping, click the Wiretap
logo at the top right of your screen. After our menu opens,
click the Trending Shows tab and watch the same shows as other
wiretappers. You can read their comments and vote on them, or
add some of your own.
You’ll see comments at the top right of your screen if an
episode has been wiretapped. The comments are synced according
to the timeline. Psst, comments on the timeline are those
notches at the bottom of your screen.
By default, Wiretap comments are turned on during a show and
spoilers are turned off.
We understand that you may want to turn the comment stream off
now and again. To do that, click the Wiretap logo at the top
right of your screen. Our menu opens and then beside Comments,
you can slide the toggle to Off.
Got it. Just wait until the episode’s credits almost finish
and you’ll see an Aftershow tab for adding comments. We
affectionately call that area “the wall.” You also can vote on
Then share the love. You can upvote the episode on the
Aftershow tab, which you’ll see near the end of an episode’s
A very good question. A spoiler is a comment that gives away
info, which doesn't happen until later in the episode or
series. Yes, a spoiler is a spoiler even if that info happens,
say, one minute later. Here are a few examples of spoilers:
saying someone will die, referring to a hookup that hasn’t
happened yet, mentioning something from season 2 in season 1,
and...well, you get the idea.
Sure, you may just have the itch to share something
spoiler-ish. If you do, please be sure to mark your comment as
a spoiler. Psst - tick the Spoiler box at the bottom right of
your comment. Thanks.
Great question. Like how you’re thinking, because you can help
moderate and keep Wiretap a safe, respectful place. At the
bottom right of each comment, click
and you’ll then see Mark
as... Spoiler or Offensive. Choose one option and you’ll help
us keep the comment stream stellar. And for more info, please

Wiretap is currently in "Open Beta" because we’re still
learning from our users - what works, what doesn't, and what
else would be really fan-tastic (See what we did there? ;)) to
have. Have a suggestion? We'd love to
hear from you
Say it isn’t so. If you’d like to part ways, you can uninstall
the Wiretap extension in Chrome, then that’s that.
