Amazon Alexa can Now Help you Decide What to Watch on Netflix




, , ,

Amazon Fire TV and Alexa are about to become your new best friends when it comes to deciding what to stream. Starting today, Alexa will now be able to give users recommendations on what to watch on Netflix without the endless scrolling.

To let Alexa do the picking for you, start from the Fire TV home screen and just use your Alexa Voice remote to say, “Alexa, Play Something on Netflix,” and Netflix will launch a show or movie you might enjoy.

The recommendations might just help you find your new favorite show like Maid, or Locke and Key, or you might discover a movie you would’ve otherwise never knew you loved like The Starling or The Guilty.

The feature works with the Alexa voice remote on any Fire TV device, or hands-free with the recently launched Fire TV Omni Series which lets you control it even from across the room.

“Alexa, Play Something on Netflix” is debuting today across all Fire TV devices in the U.S. and Canada.
