Netflix is trialling a new feature, designed to take the pain out of choosing what to watch.
In the last few days a number of subscribers have reported seeing a large button labelled ‘Shuffle Play’ on the home screen beneath the profile icon. When pressed, the streaming service will randomly play content that it believes the user will like, based on what’s been viewed in the past.
It’s currently being found on the Netflix app for TV devices.
Netflix confirmed the test to TechCrunch, which first reported the story, confirming that the worldwide rollout began last month.
The streamer will evaluate the results before deciding if to make it a permanent feature. Broadcast TV News
