Netflix tests timer on Android devices

Have you ever fallen asleep on a TV show? Do you watch episodes that "interest" you, did you sleep and the shows continue to play?

Not anymore: Netflix is ​​testing a timer feature on Android that lets you stop a show after a certain amount of time has elapsed.

The new feature allows users to choose between four timer settings: 15, 30, 45 minutes or at the end of the episode.

When the selected timeout expires, the Netflix application will stop. This should, in theory, help maintain battery life on Android devices, while ensuring that episodes do not continue to play automatically.

Although testing is limited to select users worldwide with Android devices at the moment, Netflix will make it available on other devices, such as TVs and desktops, depending on whether subscribers like the idea, according to the company. .
