After looking for a new movie or TV show that you can watch on Netflix, people can dress up before deciding for 10 minutes that they just aren't that interested. Netflix's new "Remove from Line" feature is designed to make it easier for users to remove these titles from their currently viewed offerings.
The goal is to give users more control over what is displayed on their Netflix homepage. The "Keep Watching" line is one of the best known and is shown at the top of the home page. This makes it easy to jump back into a TV show someone is making their way through, or to continue exactly where they left off with The Irishman (if you're like me and it took a few sessions to watch).
The annoying thing, however, is that the title does not go out of line if someone is no longer interested in watching a movie or a television program. It will eventually shift across the board when new titles are viewed, but it won't just go away. Now users can access the function by clicking on a title in the line. The following screenshot shows an example of how it looks on Android devices.
Netflix also makes it a little quicker to access episodes, information, and ratings by inserting them directly into the menu when users tap a title. This should prevent people from having to go to the individual landing page for the film or TV show. An example of the link can be found in the following screenshot.
The "Remove from line" function is currently available to mobile Android users on both phone and tablet devices. Netflix plans to release the feature on June 29 for iOS device users. The Verge asked Netflix for more information about the further rollout.
