The Netflix Play Something feature was added to the TV last month, and now the feature seems to be being tested on Android. According to reports, some Android users will see a “play something” button on the home screen or when selecting a profile. The “play something” feature randomly selects the movie or TV show to be played to match your preferences, thus bypassing the lengthy discussion about what to watch next. This feature has been tested for nine months before it was put into TV in the second half of last month.

Engadget found the Play Something button in the Netflix Android application as a dedicated button in the bottom navigation bar. You can also think of it as a floating option just above the bottom bar. In the “Play something” tab, if they don’t want to watch the recommended content, Netflix will display their recommended content based on the profile user’s preferences, with a “Play something” button. This “play other things” button can be used multiple times until you find the content you want to watch.

The “play something” function works when a profile is remembered, which means that the programs or movies it recommends are based on the user’s favorite viewing content of the profile. Since enabling this feature globally last month, it can be seen that Netflix does want its users to use this feature because it can be accessed in three areas-on the profile selection screen under your name, in the navigation menu ( The left side of the screen, and the tenth line on the Netflix homepage.

Android Police also found the Play Something option on Android, but there is no dedicated button in the bottom navigation bar. It appears in the profile selection screen and is a floating option above the bottom navigation bar. Different versions of Android may display this feature in different ways.

Gadget 360 cannot find the Play Something function on the Android app. Since Netflix is ​​currently testing this feature, it may be rolled out to all Android users in the next few weeks. So far, there is no information about the iOS implementation of Play Something.
