Most of us only experience nothing but first world problems here in the United States. And this blog post covers a topic that is a natural extension of our tech-driven “problems,” one of which is being resolved at the moment.
Netflix, currently the No. 1 online streaming service, is rolling out a “Shuffle” button after a short test among select users.
This is probably a long-over due feature that the No. 1 streaming service should have added a long time ago. With that being said, I am curious to see what type of TV shows and movies the Netflix algorithm spits out to us. Hopefully indecisive viewers will no longer spend what seemingly feels like half the day trying to find something to watch.
Of course, some of us are a bit more cynical when compared to others:

The last time I fired up Netflix, I honestly can’t say I remember seeing the Shuffle Play button. Guess I will now keep a closer look to give it a try.
There is no shortage of streaming services with massive catalogs of content to binge watch. The problem as of late, however, is finding the key is additional personalization. NBCUniversal’s Peacock service provides random content plays through channels. HBO Max also is developing an enhanced algorithm to keep subscribers engaged in content we actually want to watch.
