Netflix has brought its Play Something Shuffle Button to Android devices, giving viewers a chance to quickly select a random episode for their traffic.
The option, currently available on the Web and Smart TV app, aims to help customers move through indecision and quickly start viewing an item from their list or based on their viewing habits.
However, while it is useful on television, when everyone wants to watch something to avoid the curse of endless scrolling, it can prove to be even easier on mobile.
For example, if you are on a daily commute to work or are jumping on the treadmill in the gym, you may have limited time to watch an episode. Any delays here and you have ever arrived, you will not have time to arrive at a full show before arriving at the destination or finishing your workout.

Netflix has recently launched functionally on its Android app, as seen by Eagle-Eyed People Android police. If you have access to the feature within your Netflix app, it appears in some places within the app. The report says:
“However, accessing the feature doesn’t seem universal. One of our readers found a shuffle button with a profile selection screen while it was in the lower-right corner of my app.
Once users press the Android ‘Play Something’ button, they will see a suggestion, but can hit the button again for cycling through other titles, or simply tap one of the other suggestions Huh.
There is no news yet on whether the launch on Android will be followed on iOS, but we see no reason why it will not be available on both platforms in the near future.
