Netflix Finally Adds a Quality of Life Feature We’ve Wanted for Ages

Remember that one episode of New Girl you watched on Netflix back in 2019? Netflix does. Thankfully, it (finally) added a “Remove from Continue Watching” button to all of its versions, allowing you to better curate your “Continue Watching” list.

Although tech-savvy folks have had an unnecessarily complex workaround to this for several years, the streaming giant finally caved and added a simpler and more user-friendly button. Now it’s super easy to remove all of those terrible shows you started watching but ultimately bailed on. You no longer have to be embarrassed about the choices you make on Netflix.

Netflix assured everyone in a recent blog post that it has totally “heard us” and that, “Starting today, members around the world can remove a TV show or movie from your ‘Continue Watching’ row on all devices, including TV, with the click of a button. Simply click on a show or film, and select ‘Remove from Continue Watching’ from the page options. If you change your mind, you can also undo that removal by clicking the back arrow button.”

It looks as though Netflix has been working hard to make improvements and add new features lately, like boosting streaming capabilities for select Google Pixel devices. It also added mobile games to its app for some reason and increased its prices. You win some, you lose some I guess.
