Real-time chat with friends whilst watching Netflix.
Wiretap lets Netflix users connect with friends, bloggers, and show creators during their favorite shows.
Web Chrome Extension
Ruby on Rails
How can we provide Netflix viewers with a platform to chat with friends while enjoying their favorite content?
Wiretap came to CodeLink to first work with and then take over from their existing vendor to boost the productivity and output of work in both the design and development of their chrome extension. Wiretap first needed CodeLink to build on the foundational feature set for the initial product release and then move on to the iterative design and development of further backlog features.
Wiretap hired CodeLink as an embedded team to work directly with the design lead and content creator at Wiretap.
Wiretap engaged with CodeLink for 20 months for the design and development of the full Wiretap platform.
After completing the foundational features of the product, CodeLink designed and developed a range of functionalities. These included live chat, multiple user types, unlocks and badges, a unique scoring system to improve the comment viewing algorithm, and robust reporting dashboards in Google Data Studio to capture and build features based on the behavior of Wiretap users.
