Netflix Replaces Queue with Smart ‘My List’ That Knows What You Want To Watch Next

Goodbye Instant Queue; Hello ‘My List’. This morning, Netflix introduced ”a new way to save titles to your own row on Netflix.” It’s called “My List” and director of product innovation Mark Spiegelman calls it “a better way to help you easily find and watch those titles you picked to watch.”

Like the old queue, “My List” lets you save lists of movies and TV shows you regularly watch, want to watch or just want to save in an easy-to-access row. However, this new list incorporates a new smart auto-sorting feature that Netflix purports will present you with “the titles you’re most likely to watch right up front.”

Additionally, “My List” will incorporate extra details into content titles on their website (and on other devices in the coming months) to help make your decisions about what to watch easier. For instance, they’ll tag TV series with new seasons and indicate if the service’s rights to stream a certain title are about to expire so you can hurry up and watch.

“My List” is rolling out starting today and everyone should have access within the next two weeks. Do you have it yet? Let us know what you think!
