Netflix continues to add new features to the platform to enhance the viewing experience. This year, Netflix has added features such as “Play Something” to play random movies or series. It also allows us to watch content that we have been given to download offline to watch even if the download has not finished. Now, the platform has improved its parental controls.
To do this, the platform has announced two features that are available from today on Netflix. The first is an email that summarizes the content that children watch, and the second is another feature that will make it easier to find content for children to watch.
So, the first feature will consist of an email that parents will receive in their email every two weeks. In it, there will be a five-year summary that will allow parents to better understand their children’s preferences, as well as discover new ways to explore their interests.
For example, we will find Netflix recommendations for new series and movies that children may like. There will also be content outside of the platform, such as printable coloring sheets or activities inspired by the characters they love the most. It will also show what kind of serials or content they like the most, with key elements such as science, friendship, etc. There will also be tips on how to get the most out of Netflix’s kids’ features.
Top 10 most popular content each day
The second feature will be a new row called “Top 10 Most Popular Kids”, which will show the 10 most popular movie content or episodes of series in the USA each day. With this, you will quickly know which content is most successful.
As we can see, Netflix continues to improve the platform to make it more accessible and interactive for users. Before including a new feature, the platform usually tests it on a limited group of users, and if it finally works properly, it extends it to all platform subscribers.
Most of the new features introduced in 2021 come in handy for the summer. In the case of these new features for children, it is easier to choose the content we want them to watch. In the case of viewing content that we have only partially downloaded, it is ideal to continue watching something if we have run out of coverage, or if we have not had time to complete the download on public WiFi.
