Netflix has had a problem with the way it deals with watched content for years now. You see, every show and movie you start watching gets added to your “Continue Watching” tab. This tab lives right at the top of your page and it is often the first thing you see when loading the service up. This means even if you start a movie and hate it, the content will be added to this row. It created clutter and even if you never intend on watching it ever again, it will be there. Thankfully, Netflix is added a new “remove from row” feature that will help clean up the mess.
As of now, the feature is available on the Netflix Android app with iOS rolling out on 29 June 2020. The Netflix feature will appear when you tap on one of the shows in your “Continue Watching” tab. Users can now select “remove from row” which will delete the previously-watched TV or movie. This means you won’t be subjected to seeing content that you thought was cool but within 20 minutes in, you could not watch the bad English dub (happens to me all the time).
Aside from the new Netflix remove from continue watching row, the platform added a faster way to get to the meat of the content. When users tap on a show or movie it will now give you the option to go straight to the episodes list. Previously, you had to tap on the show then go into episodes. Netflix now removed one step from the process.
Keep in mind that this feature is only available on Android for now and will be coming to iOS on 29 June. We are not sure if the company plans on rolling it out to smart TVs but they most likely will.
