Your Netflix experience is about to get even better. The streaming giant recently announced via a blog post that it’s about to release the first major update to TV applications since late 2013. It looks like the update won’t change the app’s design in a major way, but it will help you make a faster choice concerning what to watch.
Now, when you select a title, it will start or resume playing while displaying key information to help you confirm your choice.
“We’re letting the content speak for itself by providing a more immersive and cinematic experience that best represents the capabilities and expectations of today’s TVs. Video is a rich medium for storytelling and we’ve found bringing video playback into the content selection experience makes it easier to find something great to watch,” the Netflix team wrote. According to them, the whole thing will look something like this.
Netflix will start rolling the update globally today, and it will be available on eligible devices over the following days.
