Don’t know what to stream? Here’s how Netflix can choose it for you


There are days when people just want to “Netflix and chill,” and there are days when you don’t really know where to begin. With so many titles to choose from on the platfrom, how would you know which one is worth a try? The next time this happens to you, let Netflix’s new feature called “Play Something” do all the work for you.

In a blog post on April 28, Netflix Product Innovation Director Cameron Johnson said that the feature offers a unique and exciting way to discover new titles based on what you’ve watched in the past. Here’s how it works:

  1. Find “Play Something” in multiple ways on your TV: under your profile name, on the tenth row of your Netflix homepage, or on the navigation menu on the left side of your screen.
  2. When you hit the “Play Something” button, you’ll be provided with a series or film we know you’ll love based on what you’ve watched before.
  3. If you prefer to watch something else, click “Play Something” once more and get either a brand new series or film, a series or film you’re already watching, a series or film on your list, or unfinished content you may want to revisit.

For members that use screen-readers, “Play Something” fully supports Text-to-Speech (TTS). To discover your next favorite film or show with Play Something using TTS, visit Netflix’s Accessibility help center.
