Figuring out what to watch given the huge number of options available to us is a nightly dilemma for some individuals. Netflix has for quite some time been trying to solve that issue by constantly fine tuning its algorithms. It even used to have a great time bot that would make suggestions dependent on your mood and interests. Presently, you can just allow Netflix take the reins.
A feature called Play Something is carrying out on TV devices, with support for mobile coming soon. Netflix has been running public tests of the tool (which was recently known as Shuffle Play) since a year ago.
At the point when you open the Netflix application, you’ll see a Play Something button under your profile picture. You’ll likewise discover it on the tenth row on the homepage (maybe for when you get tired of looking through the library) or on the navigation menu on the left.
Click the button, and Netflix will start playing a selection it reckons you’ll stay with. It very well may be something new, a title you’ve effectively been watching, one from your list or a show or film you began some time back and never wrapped up.
You’ll be able to skip to another pick with the Play Something Else option if the one Netflix recommends doesn’t hit the mark. You can generally leave the feature and head over to the regular menu also. Then, Play Something has full text-to-speech support for the individuals who use screen readers.
The feature had a decent success rate when they attempted it. It previously suggested the Formula 1: Drive to Survive docuseries (no, thanks), before firing up three bangers in a row: Parks and Recreation, Community and Schitt’s Creek. It likewise recommended the new series Shadow and Bone, which they intend to look at eventually.
Netflix’s point with Play Something is to make you watch something on the platform straightaway. The quicker it can do that, the less time you’ll spend spend scrolling through the catalog, maybe asking why you’re keeping your subscription in the first place.
