(Pocket-lint) – It’s been a while since Netflix introduced its “Play Something” button, a shortcut that lets you queue up for a show or movie based on what its recommendation engine thinks you’ll enjoy. .
Now, to make this system a little easier to use, Fire TV owners can use their voice commands to get it up and running very quickly.
Amazon has added a new shortcut for Alexa, which allows you to do something on Netflix very easily. This is how it works.
How to use Play Something with Alexa
- Make sure you’re using a Fire TV with a voice remote (or a Fire TV Omni model with hands-free voice control).
- Using voice command, say “Alexa, play something on Netflix”.
- If you have a valid Netflix account on your device, it will start playing the content for you.
It’s that simple! The only challenge here is making sure you actually have a Netflix account.
Sure, Netflix might just pick something you’re not really into, in which case you’ll be sucked into the void of scrolling through titles like the rest of us, but when the system works and picks a great pick, it can. sound a bit magical.
