Netflix is testing a new feature, called “Random Play”, for users of the Android app, which selects a episode of their TV series.
According to the Daily Mail, it will be particularly useful for users who have seen each episode of The Office or Friends many times because they are used to running the series when they do not know what to watch.
“We are testing the ability that members can run a random episode of different TV series on the Android mobile application, and these tests usually vary over time and region, and may not be permanent.
Users simply click on the thumbnail of a TV show and then start the random episode of the program at work.
“New Girl”, “Our Planet”, “Arrested Development” and “The Office” appear to be among the series included in the feature.
The tool is probably another attempt by Netflix to make users discover content more easily and quickly on their platform.
