Netflix Is Adding ‘Screen Lock’ Feature For Android Devices
Netflix is rolling out a new feature called ‘Screen Lock’ on Android devices. The new feature will prevent mess up playback when you accidentally tap a button while watching Netflix on your phone. However, this feature is already rolled for iOS devices.
This new feature Lets Android users avoid accidental touches when using the Netflix mobile app. A “screen lock” option will now appear at the bottom of your screen after you start watching a TV show or movie. Enabling screen lock will stop the button prompts, such as the “Play/Pause” buttons, from appearing, helping to prevent you from stopping playback or accidentally enabling subtitles. If you want to disable the feature, tap your screen and an “unlock” prompt will appear you’ll need to tap twice.
