Streaming services are fighting with one another to compete for viewers. They are in a rush to try and provide good content to win over as many people as possible, but they are all forgetting one crucial thing. They are overlooking the importance of a good user interface.
HBO Max’s app is somewhat glitchy and Peacock’s rewind setting leaves a lot to be desired. Netflix has had a lot of complaints about their new autoplay feature as well, but this has since been fixed. Now there is a new Netflix genre categories menu to explore. Here’s how to do it.
How to use the new Netflix genre categories menu
Netflix is now updating their category menus. If you have a Fire TV, an Android TV or even a Roku device, then you will see that the streamer brings up a list of the genres that you happen to watch the most. Each genre also comes with a selection of the most relevant movies and TV shows. Netflix are yet to confirm if they are going to be rolling out this feature to everyone but there are ways to make navigation easier.
Browsing by Genre
- Click on the search button
- Look under the keyboard option
- View the alphabetical list of genres
If you see that your TV does not have this kind of feature, then the search bar will give you the chance to look up a genre by name.
Browsing with a Mobile Device
- Tap on Categories
- You can then see individual genres in the drop-down menu
