To enable users to fine-tune their recommendations and let the service know what types of television series and films they want to see more of, the video streaming platform Netflix has added a new feature in its rating system.
According to the latest update, Netflix has introduced a Double Thums up button that aims to help improve content recommendations for its members.
“The Double Thums Up is an additional way for members to let us know what types of series and films you want to see more of,” reads a statement issued by the Netflix.
Users can find the newly added Double Thums Up option next to the Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down buttons on their TV, Web, Android and iOS mobile devices. The feature got enabled starting April 11.
The new feature has been added based to provide an additional way to tell us when you’re really into something means a profile with recommendations that better reflect what you enjoy.
Consider Double Thumbs Up as a way to fine-tune your recommendations to see even more series or films influenced by what you love. A Thumbs Up still lets us know what you liked, so we use this response to make similar recommendations. But a Double Thumbs Up tells us what you loved and helps us get even more specific with your recommendations. For example, if you loved Bridgerton, you might see even more shows or films starring the cast, or from Shondaland.
