As per the reports, the Android user will see the Play Something button on the home screen or when they select a profile. You will see random shows or movies that are recommended to watch. This feature is helpful when you are confused of what to watch.
A director of Netflix, Cameron Johnson, said that this new button can play 75 series. He also said, that most people stick to the first show or can skip to more.
How to use the “Play Something” feature on Netflix Android App?
Once the user turns on the feature, Netflix will show the same with a button. Press on the “Play Something Else” button and check out the next movie or a series. If you want to go back to the browsing screen, then click on the exit button that is on the top left corner of the screen.
