You can finally stop blocking the mute button when you first open Netflix: on Thursday, the streaming giant answered the prayers of many users by allowing us to disable those autoplay previews on its home page.
"We have heard the feedback loud and clear ̵
If your habit of watching too much has become a problem, Netflix has also added the option to disable the automatic play of the next episode of a show (it looks like the screen is watching & # 39; always? & # 39; us however).
Any changes you make to your auto play settings are specific to your profile and will take effect on all devices, according to a message in the Netflix Help Center.
Here's how to enable or disable the automatic playback of trailers and episodes, according to Netflix:
1. Log in to Netflix from a web browser.
2. Select Manage profiles from the menu.
3. Select the profile that you want to update.
4. Enable the option to automatically play Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices and Next episode in a series on all devices .
It can take a while for the change to take effect, Netflix noted. However, you can force the update by switching to a different profile and then switching back to yours to reload it.
Do not worry if you are one of the few people who enjoy a loud trailer that starts unannounced. You can leave your settings exactly as they are and maintain autoplay.
