Netflix Is Testing A Shuffle Button

Have you ever opened the Netflix app because you wanted to watch something new, then found yourself spending a half-hour figuring out what to watch? Apparently this happens a lot. Well, Netflix aims to simplify the process with a new shuffle button. The concept is simple. Launch the app, hit the shuffle button, and Netflix randomly chooses something for you to watch. Needless to say, it factors in your viewing history and the ratings by others. As ridiculous as it sounds, I could see this being popular. There are times when you want to be entertained but don’t want to put a lot of thought into how.
