In order to bring its best of the watch experience and keep its users entertained Netflix keeps coming up with new features and offers on its platform. In a new development, the OTT platform has announced the launch of its “Play Something” feature. This will allow the users to be instantly met with a series or film based on what they’ve watched before. This functionality is now being rolled out to all the Netflix members globally on its TV app.
Commenting on the launch the company said, “There are times when we just don’t want to make decisions. A Friday evening after a long work week. A fridge full of food but nothing jumps out. A family movie night where no one can agree. We’ve all been there. Sometimes you just want to open Netflix and dive right into a new story. That’s why we’ve created Play Something, an exciting new way to kick back and watch.”
This Play Something button will now be added across the streaming service’s UI. This new button will appear in your Netflix profile, on the navigation bar given on the lift side as well as on its homepage. Before rolling out to all its users the feature was under development for months. At present, it will be available for a dedicated Netflix app for the Smart TV. For the Android app, the company is planning to begin testing soon.
Many times we are not able to decide what content to watch on the video streaming service so when you hit the ‘Play Something’ button Or with one more click you can ‘Play Something Else’ and it will suggest you a brand new series or film, series or film you’re already watching, content on your list or an unfinished series or film you may want to revisit.
The Play Something button can be easily accessed from, underneath your profile name, in the tenth row on your Netflix homepage and navigation menu on the left of the screen.
Also, for those members that use screen-readers, Play Something fully supports Text-to-Speech (TTS).
