Netflix wants to make its personalization even more efficient, to save you time and offer you movies and series from your favorite genres.
We all have our little Proust madeleines, genres that we particularly appreciate and whose major works we know. Whether it’s horror, comedy, romance or science fiction, Netflix has a rich and varied catalog, but it’s sometimes very difficult to find what you’re looking for when faced with so many proposals.
Le N rouge understood that this time spent criss-crossing its categories was counterproductive for its subscribers and its development. The platform continues to develop tools and features to make our job easier. It announces the arrival of a more personalized interface.
From now on, it will be possible to find your favorite genres with a simple click and thus be able to discover the series and films that best meet your expectations. On the home screen of the TV application, it will be possible to find your “top categories” on the left of the screen. The images shared by Netflix give us a glimpse of what lies ahead.
It’s also a great opportunity to find out what you watch most often. The platform explains in its press release:
“At Netflix, we’re always looking to improve our subscribers’ experience. We hope this new feature will make it easier for you to access your favorite categories and allow you to explore new genres, whether you fancy adventure, fantasy, musical or otherwise.”
To take advantage of it, go to the category tab on the left of the screen, just above the nail “+”. The first three categories are personalized selections based on your consumption habits. Then, you can take advantage of the categories of the moment, in particular the one dedicated to Earth Day.
For Netflix, this portal is a more dynamic version of its old section. We regret, however, that the selection is not more specific, with more refined categories according to our tastes. For example, in the comedy tab, not all proposals are created equal and are most often based on what subscribers like in general. If you have a particular appetite for Anglo-Saxon comedies, for example, Netflix will not only offer you series or films of the genre.
Otherwise, you can always refer to the editorial selections, all genres combined. Science fiction, Thriller, Comedies or Fantasy, there will be something for everyone.
