Add a reminder for upcoming shows
Netflix has a “Coming Soon” button at the bottom of its mobile app. The tab carries trailers and descriptions of all the upcoming shows on the platform. If you find something of your interest here, you can always add a reminder for that show or movie. Just tap on “Remind Me” and that’s it. Netflix will remind when it’s available to watch.
Change subtitles and their style
Netflix allows you to enable or disable subtitles for the shows and movies you are watching. While the show is streaming, tap on “Audio and Subtitles” button at the bottom of your screen and select the Subtitles. All the available subtitles will be shown on the screen along with the option to turn them off. You can also change the appearance of your subtitles including the font size, font style, and shadows. Go to Settings > Account > My Profile > Subtitle appearance.
Turn your movie into an audiobook
Netflix also gives you the option to transform your movie or TV show into an audiobook. The streaming service has an audio option called Audio Description that narrates the content you are watching along with scene change and physical actions.
Make your own list
Even though Netflix keeps your recently watched shows right in front of you under the “Continue Watching” queue, you may want to add up your favourite shows or the ones you are planning to watch later in a list. You can access the list with a simple tap and start watching them whenever you want. To add a show to your list, go to that show and tap on the “My list” button next to “Rate” and “Share”.
Clear your watch history
When you are watching Netflix all alone, you might end up checking out some shows that you would not want others to see in your Continue Watching queue. These titles also tend to influence your Netflix feed.
