Netflix ‘Play Something’ comes to Android users

Do you ever suffer from streaming fatigue? You know, when you’ve been binging online streaming services so hard that after a while, you run out of inspiration for what to watch?

Yeah, it’s called streaming fatigue.

Hammering the latest series of your favourite shows on Netflix or pummelling Amazon Prime for recommended watches based on your latest viewings can soon leave a man (or gal) wondering what on earth there is left to view.

Well, before you bin your Netflix, Amazon or Disney + subscription, there are two things you can do;

1.) Have a good, long hard look at yourself and ask why you spend so much time watching online TV.

2.) Pull up Netflix on your Android app and hit up the ‘Play Something’ feature – now available on Android.

Good news, binge-watching Netflix on your smartphone just got easier. The streaming service is letting some users of its Android app try ‘Play Something’, a feature that suggests content for you to watch.

The ‘Play Something’ feature is already live on Netflix’s TV apps but it’s only being tested on select Android users for now, ahead of a wider rollout. If you’ve been selected, you’ll see the Play Something button appear on both adult and child profiles.

‘Play Something’ uses your viewing history and algorithms to suggest movies, documentaries, and TV shows that you might like. Hit the Play Something button and you’ll jump right in, no endless scrolling required.

Don’t like what you see? With another click, Netlfix will pick something else – this will either be from your queue, something you haven’t finished watching, or something else new based on your viewing habits.

There you go, I’ve told you in the past that occasionally we turf up some life-changing news.

Enjoy. You binge-watching maniac you.
