Netflix is Testing Timer Feature
The spokesperson of Netflix said that “We’re always looking for new ways to improve the Netflix mobile experience. This test is the latest example – a new timer that gives members more control over their viewing experience by simply choosing their favorite show or movie and setting a timer without having to worry about pausing it before it’s over.”
