trending 03/05/2021

One of the biggest dilemmas when using Netflix is deciding what film to watch as there are so many options! Well this new ‘Play Something’  button feature may have the solution that will stop the family arguing on movie night.

Netflix made the announcement on their website and the Director of Product Innovation 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,” Johnson said.

“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. “

After pressing the ‘Play Something’ button you’ll be met with a recommendation of something Netflix’s algorithm knows you’ll like. If you press it again you could watch a new series/film, something you’re already watching, something on your watchlist or something you haven’t watched in awhile.

No more endless scrolling on your phone or kids arguing! Will you be trying out this new feature?
