Netflix Praised For Finally Getting Rid Of An Annoying Feature

Netflix Praised For Finally Getting Rid Of An Annoying Feature

One Netflix fan said the chance had 'cheered me up immensely'

Netflix has been praised for getting rid of a 'long overdue' feature.

The streaming service has added a new option to its interface and users are absolutely loving it.


The 'continue watching' feature has always allowed viewers to, well, continue watching where they left off.

Yet, the issue has also been that if you watch the pilot of a new series for example and you aren't quite feeling it, the show will stay in your 'continue watching' pile, which would be pretty annoying.

However, Netflix have finally added a brilliant new feature where you can manually edit your 'continue watching' and remove the series and films that you just aren't that in to.

The feature was first tested with Android users two years ago, reports The Independent, and will now be implemented for all users on any device they might choose to go with.

One user wrote: "Netflix giving you the option to remove shows from continue watching has cheered me up immensely. Even if it is 7 years late."

A second added: "Netflix adding a 'remove from continue watching' option is the best thing that's happened so far this year."

Someone else commented: "Netflix added a 'remove from continue watching' button and it’s the best thing since 'skip intro'."


A final user concluded: "The future may be uncertain, and the end always near, but focus on the positive.

"Netflix has now added the option to remove shows and movies from your continue watching list."

Netflix has just added yet another gripping new true crime doc to its ever-growing roster.

The Tinder Swindler landed yesterday (2 February) and centres on Cecilie Fjellhoy, a hopeless romantic who is looking for love online but finds herself trapped in one man's intricate web of deception.

The film, which comes from the makers of Don't F**k with Cats, follows Cecilie, a Norwegian student living in London, on a whirlwind romance with Simon Leviev, a billionaire playboy and self-proclaimed 'Prince of Diamonds'.

The official synopsis reads: "Swipe, swipe, swipe... It’s not easy to find love online, so when Cecilie matches with a handsome billionaire playboy, she can’t quite believe it when he turns out to be the man of her dreams.


"But dreams aren't reality and by the time she discovers this international businessman isn’t who he says he is, it’s too late. He’s taken her for everything.

"Where this fairytale ends, a revenge thriller begins. Cecilie discovers his other targets and once they band together, they're victims no more: THE TINDER SWINDLER meets his match."

The Tinder Swindler is available to watch on Netflix now.
