Sometimes when you pull up Netflix with it’s ever-growing library of on-demand shows and movies, it becomes a hurdle to simply choose what to watch. Yeah, share this article with that person who spends more time deciding what to watch than actually watching something. Well according to the Wrap, you may have a solution coming in the form of a “random episode” button. So basically if you are watching a series, this could randomly play an episode without even having to make the call yourself.
“We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app. These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent,” said a Netflix spokesperson in the article.
The feature is currently being tested on the Android mobile version of Netflix on a handful of TV series.
This would be a pretty clever move to give people an option to watch TV with less of the work. Yes, some people think picking a show is ‘work’.
