Netflix to allow users to delete shows from Continue Watching list
The new feature is set to be rolled out on Android apps first
Most of us rely on the Continue Watching section of the Netflix home page as a shortcut to watching our current favourite shows. However, it's very likely that it's also littered with shows you have started to watch and since given up on ... it's 2020, we don't finish every series we start.
It may well annoy you that those shows hang around, with no way to edit or curate your Netflix home page. But that is about to change.
The streaming service is rolling out a new feature, which will allow users to delete shows manually.
So the only titles that will remain in your Continue Watching tab are shows and films that you, indeed, plan to continue watching.
The feature is set to be initially introduced on Android apps, though Netflix has said it will come to Apple iOS soon. It seems that the feature will be limited to streaming via Netflix apps for now, and not included on web or TV browser platforms.
Users will be able to click on a "more" button underneath the show's tile, and that will offer the option to "remove from row". Also in the menu will be information on the show or film, the option to download from the app and to rate it.
Netflix has said the feature will take time to be presented in its entirety.
