But what if, like in music playlists, there was a 'shuffle' button on Netflix? Would you let the fate (read: Netflix) decide what you should watch next? Looks, like you may have that option soon.

Netflix confirmed to TechCrunch that it is testing a "Shuffle Play" feature.

As per the report, an icon called "Shuffle Play" will appear on Netflix home screen, beneath the user profile icon. This feature will randomly play content based on your previous watch, including something that you have saved on your list.
