Do you sometimes have trouble deciding what to watch on Netflix? No problem – just leave the decision up to them.

Netflix is reportedly testing out a ‘Shuffle Play‘ button that will play random shows – ones they think you might like based on your preferences and viewing history.

The shuffle feature has been in the works since last month but there’s no guarantee it will be coming to your homescreen – Netflix says they frequently test out new features but “only make them broadly available if people find them useful”.

Do you sometimes struggle to pick out a show or movie to stream? Isn’t using a ‘shuffle’ button basically like watching a TV channel?
