Jingle bells, ice, and all that jazz. It’s the holiday season, which means only one thing: binge-watching.
As we nap on our trusty official ‘couch’ and set Netflix on fire to take out the sounds of our beloved family, we are still facing a question that has us since the dawn of human existence. Is disturbing: what should I see?
The search for the right content, the perfect piece of miracle cinema for this exact occasion is a difficult endeavor, no matter how well Netflix’s recommendations have gone. Also, the thing about recommendations is that We To know They only scratch the surface of Netflix’s huge archives. So we are always left wondering if there can be something better in looking back.
Of course, Netflix knows this, so it offers us a few different options from love – such as simply browsing through TV shows or movies and searching by title, genre, and people. Surely this is enough to please all of us and does not fit on incompatible application features?
We want something better this holiday season, so I am praying on behalf of all mankind: Please Netflix, please give us Length-Based Search Options!
You and I both know that a search option is so important for how long it takes to watch content, but let me explore the situation to execute a loaded Netflix to read it.

But you can never really solve FOMO. You’re always going to waste hours on millions, trying to find content to start and stop movies until they just get it right.
However, I believe that you can make people happy in making decisions – they use only what they know their evening needs for the evening – without forcing content on them with autoplay. About: Length.
Most of us get an idea of how much time we are going to spend that evening (even though it may be a lie) on the couch, so providing us with the option to search on that basis just makes economic sense.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the film in my recommendations, which I really want to see – but then serious on its 2+ hour run-time. ‘After some time,’ I tell myself and then look for a more suitable film for the time I have left. Then suddenly I find out that I’ve wasted a lot of time on the quest and am just reclaiming the same sitcom for the tenth time …
So, dear Netflix, if you care about us and the Christmas spirit, you can give us categories for searching for content that is ‘less than 30 minutes’, ‘less than 1 hour’ and ‘less than 2 hours’ or Will give option And make all the dreams of humanity come true.
Do you know that we have a newspaper about consumer technology? This is called a plug-in –
