The quarantine period has given us plenty of time to binge-watch movies and series. But staying for more than five months in isolation has already made many of us scour the depths of online streaming sites like Netflix.

Now that we’ve already watched everything from our list, finding a new show to indulge ourselves has become a problem. With the endless movie titles and TV series available on Netflix, it can be hard to find a show that matches your taste.

According to TechCrunch, the initial idea behind Netflix’s new feature is to help viewers quickly and easily find shows of their liking. An official word from Netflix suggests that the company wants its members to feel like they are watching traditional TV.
Netflix said that it started to roll out the new test to members worldwide last month but only on TV devices. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any word on whether computers and mobile phones will also have the new feature.
