Netflix offers a variety of content that we can enjoy, from kilig-inducing K-dramas, action-packed Hollywood blockbusters, to exhilarating Anime titles. But sometimes we just want to relax and watch something without having to stress over the multitude of choices on the service. If you can relate to this, then this new feature on Netflix may just be the thing you are looking for.

You can find Play Something in multiple ways on your TV:
- Underneath your profile name
- The tenth row on your Netflix homepage
- The navigation menu on the left of the screen
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. Or with one more click you can ‘Play Something Else’ and get:
- A brand new series or film,
- A series or film you’re already watching,
- A series or film on your list, or
- An unfinished series or film you may want to revisit.
For members that use screen-readers, Play Something fully supports Text-to-Speech (TTS). To discover your next favorite film or show with Play Something using TTS, visit our Accessibility help center for more information on how to enable this feature through your TV device settings.
When finding your next story, let the story find you. Whether you’re in the mood for a new or familiar favorite, just ‘Play Something’ and let Netflix handle the rest. Easy.
