Netflix’s ‘Play Something’ Feature Rolls out on Android




, ,

Netflix is expanding its shuffle feature to more than just its TV app. Starting this week, the Play Something feature has begun rolling out to all Android mobile devices, making it even easier to find something to watch on Netflix.

The feature has been live on the Netflix app for TVs since earlier this spring, and is visible underneath your profile name, on the tenth row on your Netflix homepage, and on the navigation menu on the left of the screen. On the mobile layout, Android users will see the ‘Play Something’ button hovering over the content at the bottom of their screen.

The feature has also been available to some Android users since May when Netflix began testing it for mobile. Now, all Android users will see the official feature rollout. Netflix says it will begin testing the feature on iOS in the coming months.
