Can someone give a TL;DR on architecture of this and Netflix party. How is synchronization maintained ?

Syncronisation can not be maintained as there is no info bingetogether gets from the services at what time code the video is.

Playback control is currently not supported.

Is this just a chat web app then ?

No it synchronises the start of the video and allows to have a voice chat during the watch party.

So it's 1% as convenient as cytube.

Or rabb.it (defunct).
