MUMBAI: Streaming giant Netflix has rolled out a new feature designed to alert subscribers about what’s new and coming soon on the platform. The new move will allow members to explore all the latest additions to the service and also get a sneak peek at what they’ll be watching next.

According to a Netflix blog, the new ‘Latest’ tab, located on the left side navigation bar, will break titles down into three helpful new categories: ‘New This Week,’ ‘Coming This Week,’ and ‘Coming Next Week.’ The three rows will reach across all content areas like drama, comedy, horror, docs, foreign, original, licensed and even kids’ content.

Moreover, users will now be able to click a ‘Remind me’ button on specific upcoming titles to receive a notification when they are available to stream.

The feature which was launched in August will continue to be rolled out by the company on eligible devices over the next few weeks. The ‘latest’ tab will be available on all Netflix enabled devices, including many game consoles and Roku devices while Smart TVs and others will get this upgrade in the coming months.
