The user interface of Netflix is updated on a regular basis. In a new update, the streaming service behemoth has introduced a new feature called “Category Hub” in the TV menu. This functionality will make it easier for viewers to find their favourite content on the streaming platform. Previously the company brought a thumbs-based recommendation system that allows users to suggest what they’ve been watching.
In a blog post, Netflix announced the launch of the new Category Hub. “Are you an action junkie who craves car chases? A horror buff in constant need of a scare? Or a comedy nerd always looking for the punchline? We all have our go-to genres on Netflix. No matter what you’re in the mood for, what you don’t want is to scroll through endless rows or type in a long title via search.” The company further added, “That’s why we’re rolling out a new Category Hub in the TV menu so our members around the world can easily find their favourite genres and discover new categories of films, series and specials, all in one place.”
With the addition of the new Category Hub, Netflix subscribers will be able to search for their preferred genres and explore new categories of movies. The latest Hub can be found on the left-hand menu of both kids’ and adults’ profiles. You’ll find your personalised Top 3 categories based on what you like to watch on a regular basis there. This new immersive experience will also include curated collections to commemorate local holidays such as Earth Day or International Women’s Day, as well as globally popular categories such as anime, drama, and children & family for when you want to try something new.
As we mentioned earlier Netflix added Two thumbs up, a third option to the thumbs up and down rating system. The additional Double Thumbs Up is a new way for members to tell what kinds of shows and movies they want to see more of. This option is available next to the Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down buttons on your TV, Web, Android, and iOS mobile devices.
A Thumbs Up tells the streaming platform what members liked so that similar recommendations can be made in the future. A Double Thumbs Up, on the other hand, indicates what viewers enjoyed and allows Netflix to be more specific with its recommendations. If you liked Bridgerton, for example, you might enjoy other shows or films starring the cast or from Shondaland.
