After searching for a new movie or TV show to watch on Netflix, people can show something before deciding 10 minutes they’re just not as interested. Netflix’s new “remove from row” feature is designed to make it easier for people to remove those titles from the offerings they are currently viewing.
The goal is to give people more control over what appears on their Netflix home page. The “continue viewing” row is one of the most prominent, which appears at the top of the home page. This makes it easy to go back to a TV show someone might be going through, or to start where you left off. the Irish (if you’re like me and it took me a few sessions to see).
However, the annoying thing is that if someone is no longer interested in watching a movie or TV show, the title doesn’t disappear from the row. It eventually gets pushed down as new titles are watched, but it doesn’t just disappear. People can now access the feature by clicking a title in the row. There is an example of how it looks on Android devices in the following screenshot.
Netflix is also making it quicker to access episodes, info, and ratings by adding them directly to the menu when people touch a title. This should avoid people having to go to the individual home page of the movie or TV show. An example of the shortcut is in the screenshot below.
The “remove from row” feature is currently available to Android mobile users on both phones and tablets. Netflix intends to roll out the feature for people using iOS devices on June 29. The edge has asked Netflix for more information on further deployment.
