Netflix adding the “Two Thumbs up” feature
Instead of the basic ‘thumbs up’ button that existed previously, Netflix is adding a new ‘two thumbs up’ function for subscribers to express which series and movies they really enjoyed on the platform. The goal is to offer Netflix subscribers greater agency and control over their suggestions while also assisting them in fine-tuning them.
