Netflix continues to enjoy the best phase of its history which, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, continues to receive a large number of new users. Therefore, more and more resources have been invested in the development of new features to improve the user experience.

Now, according to The Verge, tests of a new functionality will start today that will surely leave many users satisfied, a timer.

As you would expect, this new tool will allow users to stop playing the series or movie they are watching automatically, without having to worry if they fall asleep.

Netflix launches timer that will be the lifesaver of many users

Obviously, this is a problem that does not have serious consequences, but very frustrating. Certainly it has happened to you that you are watching episodes of your favorite series on Netflix at night and, you wake up the next day with half the season “seen”.

With the introduction of this timer, the goal is to prevent such situations from happening, giving users some additional control.

For now, during the testing phase, it will only be launched for Android users and will have some limitations. The timer has only 4 pre-defined options, not allowing its customization:

  • 15 minutes
  • 30 minutes
  • 45 minutes
  • Until the end of the episode

There is still no official confirmation, but it seems very likely that eventually the option to select custom timer time will be added.
