There are times when you open the Netfilix app hoping to watch a movie, but you get caught up with all the new movies and series that pops up everyday and can’t make a choice. This stressful feeling is about to fade away because Netflix in trying to make lives of users better has introduced a new feature.

‘Play something’ which was introduced on the app is designed for those all-too-frequent moments when you have no idea what to watch. The new feature allows you to instantly watch something new without the hassle of browsing.

When you hit the ‘Play Something’ button, you’ll be instantly met with a series or film we know you’ll love based on what you’ve watched before.

For members that use screen-readers, Play Something fully supports Text-to-Speech (TTS). To discover your next favorite film or show with Play Something using TTS, visit our Accessibility help center for more information on how to enable this feature through your TV device settings.

When you hit the ‘Play Something’ button, you’ll be instantly met with a series or film we know you’ll love based on what you’ve watched before. Or with one more click you can ‘Play Something Else’ and get;

  • A brand new series or film,
  • A series or film you’re already watching,
  • A series or film on your list, or
  • An unfinished series or film you may want to revisit.

And to keep it easy, you can find Play Something in multiple ways on your TV:

  • Underneath your profile name
  • The tenth row on your Netflix homepage
  • The navigation menu on the left of the screen

Next time you are in a dilemma on what movie to watch let ‘Play Something’ handle that.
