As the name would imply, Shuffle Play works like your usual shuffle or random function on your music player.
Just press play, and Netflix will randomly put something on based on your viewing history and preferences.
Netflix said that the idea behind Shuffle Play was to help viewers spend less time looking for what to watch and easily find content tailored to their taste.
Fingers crossed that the function would be made into a permanent feature available for global viewers soon.
Typing out trending topics and walking the fine line between deep and dumb.
