Many times it happens that users fall asleep while watching a show or web series on Netflix, or they keep watching the show all night.
To save users from such a situation, the video streaming platform Netflix is testing a new feature in the Android app.
Users can now set sleep timers for TV shows and movies in the app and new buttons are being tested for this.
The option will be available only on adult profile
According to a report by The Verge, the new Netflix feature is being tested for Android users worldwide.
Based on the feedback received from users, later this feature will also be offered on TV, desktop, and iOS.
Currently, the new feature is available only in adult profiles and is not visible in the kid’s profile.
The new sleep timer button is given in the top right corner of the screen on the app.
This is how the new feature will work
The sleep timer button has four options for 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, and till the end of the TV show or movie, and one has to be selected.
Once the fixed time is over, the Netflix app will be closed. By-default This timer remains off.
The sleep timer shows options for how long the TV show or movie will end, according to which users can set the timer.
These users will benefit
If users have a habit of falling asleep while watching TV shows or movies, then Netflix videos will not play all night and the app will automatically shut down.
Similarly, with the help of the timer, users will know that it is time to sleep by removing the phone.
Nothing has been said about when the feature present in the testing phase will reach other users.
The company may also offer the ‘Shuffle Play’ feature to its users this year.
Shuffle Play feature will be available soon
Netflix has told the Q4 earnings conference that this year the shuffle play feature will be tested with more users.
It is clear from the name that with the help of this feature, suggestions of shows and movies will be made by shuffling the entire Netflix feed according to the choice of the users.
Netflix brought this feature for testing last year and it will be extended to more users and devices in 2021.
