You can finally stop blocking mute or pause buttons when you open Netflix for the first time. In 2020, the streaming giant answered the prayers of many frenzy watchers by giving us the option to turn off these autoplay previews on its homepage.

“We’ve heard the comments loud and clear – members can now control whether or not they see autoplay previews on Netflix,” Netflix tweeted at the time.

If your binge-watching habit has become an issue, Netflix has also added the ability to turn off autoplay on a show’s next episode (it looks like the judge’s “Are you still watching?” Screen remains active for the show. rest of us, however).

Any changes you make to your Autoplay settings are specific to your profile and will take effect on all devices, according to an article posted in the Netflix Help Center.

Here’s how to turn trailer and episode autoplay on or off, according to Netflix.

How to turn off Netflix’s autoplay trailers

2. To select Manage profiles menu.

3. Select the profile you want to update.

4. Check or uncheck the option for Auto-play previews while browsing all devices, and Automatically play the next episode in a series on all devices.

It may take a little while for the setting change to take effect, Netflix noted. However, you can force the update by switching to another profile and then switching back to yours to reload it.
