The streamer is rolling out a new “Shuffle Play” button on smart TVs equipped with the app.

When pressed, the button will start a random movie or TV show that corresponds to the user’s recommendations or are similar to titles the user has watched in the past. The button can be found either underneath the profile row in the startup screen, on the home screen of a user’s profile or on the TV menu sidebar.

“The purpose of the test is to make it easier for members to find something to watch,” a Netflix spokesperson tells Variety, adding that the streamer aims to roll out a permanent “shuffle” feature to all users at some point: “The hope is to absolutely productize something.”
