Netflix adds a new feature to prevent accidental pauses

Who said it is not frustrating that we are very well watching something on television and suddenly accidentally someone is wrong? If this is frustrating, imagine when we are trying to watch Netflix on your phone.

This is because the phone is more sensitive to accidental touches and can completely ruin what we are seeing on Netflix. But take it easy, because Netflix, apparently does not sleep in service and has already realized that this was happening with its users.

Netflix adds a new feature to prevent accidental pauses

And so that does not happen, Netflix will launch a new feature for Android devices in order to avoid accidentally touching the wrong button to end the display.

This new feature will allow Android users to avoid these accidents when using the Netflix app. A new option will appear, which is called “screen lock” at the bottom of the screen, when you start watching the series or the movie.

Activating this screen lock will prevent accidental touches, for example, as it happens a lot to accidentally press “Play / Pause” and prevent us spending most of the time pressing buttons while trying to see something without we get very angry.

To deactivate it is very simple, just touch your screen and a “unlock” warning will appear, which you must double-click.

But be aware, that the phone's features like sliding backwards are still active, for example, so it can be said that this screen lock is not 100 percent foolproof.

However, if you are one of those who is always moving while you are watching the video or if you have young children watching, this new feature can be a great help in order to ensure that the show does not stop.
