If you don’t know what to watch on Netflix and your thing was zapping the TV, check out the ‘Play Something’ feature because you’re going to love it.
If you are one of those who spend minutes and minutes of your free time deciding what to watch on TV or streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, or HBO, the truth is that the former have developed the perfect antidote to make a zapping of the modern era without complications or waiting.
It seems that Netflix was quite aware of the enormous indecision of its users, so the ‘Play Something’ feature has arrived to give us back our time while the service chooses what to watch automatically and intelligently.
Netflix’s idea is not to lose that magic of stumbling upon great movie classics or the most mythical chapters of our favorite series, although they will do so by evolving that Shuffle Play they promised, now using AI and studying our habits to make it possible for the service to show us almost any content to the consumer’s liking, just by pressing the new “Play Something” button.
Netflix has the cure for you not to waste time in their catalogs, with a new feature called ‘Play Something’ and that is something like a modern zapping to watch random content.
The new functionality is already available in the Netflix for TV versions of Netflix and is designed to offer any content from new releases related to our tastes to episodes we haven’t seen of series started in our library.
It uses personalized recommendations, in a similar way to what you would see in the grid, but without the need to scroll and waste time reviewing options throughout the catalog.
Plus, Play Something is in several places in the interface, from the left navigation menu to below the profile name to between some rows on the home page, so it’s easily accessible.
And if that wasn’t enough, it has been available on Android since the last update of the app on Google Play, appearing next to the profile selection menu, and activating an interface similar to what you can see on TVs to switch between movies, series, and suggested programs.
