Lately, families are collectively spending a whole lot more time inside watching movies and TV shows, and Netflix has never been more on top of things!
It seems as though Netflix has really been on the ball ever since we were told to stay in our homes until further notice.
Instead of sifting through hundreds of titles, trying to figure out what's been generating the most buzz, Netflix is now offering a new method of browsing.
Additionally, any titles branded as being in the top ten that day are given a top ten badge in the upper corner of the cover art, so you know what's popping!
There's now a Google Chrome extension that allows you to sync movies and TV shows with your friends and watch at the same time.
AND there's a group chat feature.
What a time to be alive, right?
It is a total game-changer!
Since kids are likely spending a whole lot more time on Netflix than they were just a few months ago, the streaming service has made some changes that make the overall experience more child-friendly.
They explained on their blog that several new parental control options have been added to the service.
But the most fascinated new parental control feature is one that gives parents the option to hide movies and shows.
In the settings, all you have to do is simply type in the titles you want blocked, and ta-da!
The filters even have country-specific rating scales, making it possible to ensure that children aren't watching anything that isn't age-appropriate.
"Choice and control have always been important for our members, especially parents," Netflix's Kids Product Manager, Michelle Parsons, wrote.
So, you can rest assured that Netflix has your children's best interest at heart!
