The blog post concludes that Netflix “always looks for ways to improve the member experience. We hope you’ll find this feature useful to find your most beloved categories and discover new genres when you’re craving something new.” The feature does in fact look very useful and might help viewers discover new content, shows or movies on Netflix.
Netflix recently announced a new double-thumbs-up rating system. The Netflix rating system will now feature three options – thumbs-up, thumbs-down, and the new double-thumbs-up. Netflix had a single like or dislike button up until now. Users can thumbs up content they like.
If they don’t like the plot or characters of the series or movie they are watching, they can give it a thumbs down. Users should consider the new double thumbs-up rating as something to fine-tune their Netflix recommendations. Both Android and iOS users should have access to the feature by now.
