Netflix has launched a new feature “Play Something” for its Android users that will make it easier to find something to watch when a user can’t make a decision.

Currently, iOS users won’t be able to use the new shuffle feature. But Netflix announced that it will start testing Play Something on iOS in the coming months.

“Sometimes you just want to open Netflix and dive right into a new story. That’s why we’ve created Play Something, an exciting new way to kick back and watch. When you hit the ‘Play Something’ button, you’ll be instantly met with a series or film we know you’ll love based on what you’ve watched before,” the company said in a statement.

Netflix also launched its Fast Laughs feature, which rolled out on iOS earlier this year, on Android mobile. Fast Laughs is a TikTok-style feature that shows clips from various comedies found on the platform.
