Netflix testing sleep time feature on Android devices


PTI, Jan 31, 2021, 4:24 PM IST

San Francisco: Video-streaming platform Netflix is testing a new option on Android devices globally that would enable users to set a timer for their viewing period.

The new feature lets people choose between four timer settings—15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes or to stop playback after the end of the series or movie being played.

According to the Verge, this feature will aid in conserving battery life on Android devices while also ensuring that episodes don’t continue to auto-play,

Although, the test is limited to select users globally with Android devices right now. As of now, the feature is only available on adult profiles.

In case the feature does generate enough user interest, the company has plans to roll it out to all users including TV sets and desktop apps as well. The company could potentially make a version of the feature more applicable for account profiles designed for children in the future, the report said.

However, it is not clear when this feature might be available for all the users on Netflix.
