It happened to me again last night. I was watching a show on Netflix, dozed off about 10 minutes in and woke up in the middle of the next episode. Sometimes I'll snooze through 3 or 4 episodes, then when I wake up I've gotta go back and figure out where I zoned out. If you happen to nod off during your favorite shows, Netflix is testing out a new feature you'll probably find useful. A new Sleep Timer Feature!
The Verge reports that Netflix is working with Android users on a pilot program for their new self-timer feature which will allow you to pause a show after a certain time has passed. If you feel like you might fall asleep during a show, you can set the timer for 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes or “Finish Show" and it will stop after that time has expired. They say this can also function as a way to limit the amount of screen-time your kids are allowed. Read more about the new feature HERE!
