Internet entertainment streaming service Netflix has introduced a further feature to its Android app designed to make it easier to enjoy more TV shows and movies.

Writing in the Netflix Corporate Blog, Rob Caruso director, engagement management and Francois Goldfain, engineering manager at Netflix said: “If you use Netflix on Playstation 3, our website or a number of other devices, you may already be familiar with the ‘Post-Play’ feature. Today we added this feature making it even easier to watch more on additional devices.”

According to the pair, Post-Play works for both TV shows (phones and tablets) and movies (tablets only). “At the end of an episode, we will automatically queue up the next one and start playback unless you choose to pause or stop. For movies, we will offer three recommendations to try next. You can dismiss ‘Post-Play’ by simply tapping on the video,” they advise.

Post-Play is now available to all Android phones, tablets and the Amazon Kindle Fire running Android 4.0 and greater.

They suggest subscribers check back in a few months, revealing that they are working on Post-Play for Chromecast.
