“Today, we’re introducing My Netflix, a one-stop shop tailored to you with easy shortcuts to help you choose what you want to watch,” the company announced, saying that the feature is coming for both iPhones and Android smartphones globally.
The feature is now available on iPhones and will come on Android in August.
In this dedicated space, users will be able to “see your downloads, TV series and movies you gave a thumbs up to, shows and films you’ve saved to My List, trailers you’ve watched, reminders you’ve set, whatever you’re in the middle of watching, what you’ve recently watched, and more.”
How ‘My Netflix’ will work
So when you are in a hurry and/or don’t want to spend time in searching for some content to watch, head to My Netflix on your phone where “you can quickly choose something you’ve saved or downloaded to watch.”
Users will still have the option to visit the Home tab and other sections of the app to discover the full catalogue of series and films.
“Keep in mind that the more you interact with and tell Netflix what you like, such as saving more action-thrillers like Extraction 2 to My List or giving a thumbs up to every season of Bridgerton, the more you’ll see on the My Netflix tab,” it said.
‘My Netflix’ is essentially replacing the ‘Downloads’ tab located at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Recently, Netflix expanded its password sharing crackdown to more markets, including India. Netflix uses advanced methods, such as tracking user’s IP address, device ID and account activity from devices signed into the account, to identify password sharing.
