Netflix introduced a new feature yesterday, allowing viewers to turn off autoplay previews. Autoplay video has irked many Netflix users over the years, and the company said, after listening to its subscribers, it decided to put the autoplay decision in their hands. “Some people find this feature helpful. Others not so much,” Netflix tweeted about autoplay. “We’ve heard the feedback loud and clear — members can now control whether or not they see autoplay previews on Netflix.” The streaming giant then shared a link that walked subscribers through how to opt out of autoplay previews. If you’re tired of being hit with clips from “The Office” and “Stranger Things” whenever you scroll through Netflix, here’s the steps you’ll want to follow, per Netflix:
Sign into your Netflix account from a web browser.
Select “manage profiles” from the menu.
Click the profile you want to update.
After that, make sure to check or uncheck the “autoplay previews while browsing on all devices” option. Remember to hit “save,” and you’re golden.
