Thanks to the large catalog of movies and TV shows on Netflix, choosing what to watch is often a huge task. Well not anymore. After adding its smart TV app to this great mixing feature, Netflix is now bringing a ‘Play Something’ button to Android to cure your indecision.
Netflix adds that something is being played and laughs quickly on Android
Netflix users on Android will notice a new “Play Something” button on the homepage, a touch that will take you to a random TV show or movie that Netflix thinks you might like. Just before the start of the movie / TV series, you will see an interface detailing why this show was suggested, with the option to play something else.
Netflix’s Play Something game feature is currently running on Android. As Verge reports, iOS users will have to wait to try this feature. Netflix will begin testing Play Something on iOS in the coming months.
With Play Something, Netflix is introduction of the Fast Laughs feature on Android. First launched on iOS in March earlier this year, Fast Laughs is a feed of funny clips from TikTok-like movies and TV shows available on the streaming platform. The feature is available in select markets including the US, Australia, Canada, Ireland, India, Malaysia, the Philippines and the UK.
You can access quick laughter from the bottom navigation bar of the Netflix app. It is placed between the “Coming Soon” and “Downloads” tabs. You’ll also find options to react, share a clip, mute, add to a watch list, or watch a show live.
In addition to these, Netflix is expanding its “Downloads for You” tool to iOS in the coming months. The feature will automatically download movies and shows to watch online according to your preferences.
