Netflix is helping indecisive viewers makes some important decisions. 

The streaming giant is working on a feature that would randomly select an episode of certain shows for immediate viewing. The new feature appears in two ways: a dedicated “Play a Popular Episode” column on the app’s home screen and a “random episode” button in the playback controls once you’ve started watching a series. 

The news was confirmed by Netflix to Deadline in a statement. “We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app. These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent.”

Right now Netflix is conducting a very limited test and the new feature is only available to some users of its Android app, but we have to say that it sounds absolutely awesome.
