Netflix Brings a New Feature to Better Curate Your Homepage Recommendations, Here’s How to Use

Published 04/14/2022, 3:00 PM EDT

One of the reasons behind Netflix’s monumental success is experimentation and focus on user experience. The streamer has always made an effort to improve the user experience on its platform. It understands what the viewers want and needs. And to keep people watching, Netflix knew it had to crack the secret code to give them the right recommendations.

With the streamer’s huge library, it was almost essential that the streamer introduced some kind of a method to help viewers pick their next film or series. Hence, Netflix removed the star rating system and introduced a thumbs up and down feature in 2017. Otherwise, most responses would be a flat-out no to Netflix’s “Are you Still Watching?” And now, the streamer has decided to introduce a new feature: double thumbs up. 

When does the double thumbs-up feature roll out on Netflix?
