You May LOVE This Feature Netflix Just Added
Ask, and you shall receive. Closed mouths don't get fed. How can you get what you want if you don't ask for it? Okay, enough cliches, let me just get to the point. People are pretty excited about this new feature that Netflix is finally bringing to life.
Do you hate how Netflix trailers automatically start playing when you scroll over them? Well, hate no more: The streaming platform announced Thursday that users will now be able to disable that feature if they so choose.
"Some people find this feature helpful. Others not so much. We’ve heard the feedback loud and clear," Netflix wrote on Twitter. "Members can now control whether or not they see autoplay previews on Netflix."
The company also retweeted a Twitter user who complained back on January 29, "My entire kingdom for a way to turn off the autoplay while browsing Netflix." That user, Indiana-based writer Sarah Hollowell, reacted to the news by tweeting Thursday, "I can't believe I, the one who defeated Netflix browsing autoplay, now have to go do my own dishes."
To be real, I don't personally find the auto-play annoying at all. It's actually kind of nice in my opinion. You can see a little bit of the vibe of the show or movie while reading the description. To each their own, though.
