Netflix is testing a new feature that might help you out when you’re having trouble picking what to watch on the platform.
The new “Shuffle Play” button, which appears on the home screen below the profile icons, will randomly play content Netflix thinks you’ll like. It could be a show you’re watching, something added to your list, or a title similar to what you’ve already watched.
Aside from the button on the home screen, users have reported seeing a “Play Something” option in the TV app’s sidebar.

Netflix tells TechCrunch that the feature aims to help members easily find content tailored to their tastes. The platform wants to make subscribers feel like they’re watching traditional TV. The company also says the feature has started to roll out to new members worldwide on TV devices. There’s no news yet as to when it will launch for other devices publicly.
