Netflix today introduced a new "Latest" section to its service, which is designed to highlight newly released titles and movies and TV shows that are coming soon.

According to Variety, the "Latest" section focuses specifically on just released titles, movies and TV shows coming in the current week, and movies and TV shows coming in the week after.

Upcoming titles are teased with a trailer, and Netflix users can opt to be reminded when a particular TV show or movie becomes available on the service. Netflix plans to update "Latest" multiple times a day, with content personalized for each Netflix user. This appears to be separate from the New Releases and Trending sections that Netflix offers, as it also includes upcoming content.

The new section is accessible via the Netflix app sidebar and has started rolling out on Smart TVs, streaming devices, and game consoles as of Monday.

It amazes me that this wasn’t already a thing.
From my experience, Netflix does not want to make it easy to find anything you like, quickly. By now they could have added so many useful ways to find what you are looking for. Nope, they just want you to keep scrolling and see all the stuff they have.

I think Netflix is feeling lots of pressure before Disney+ comes out.

Why didn’t Netflix release these features years ago?

I'd actually find it more useful if they added a "Here's what'll be leaving in a few weeks" section.

There are websites which have tried to do this, but Netflix has made it harder for them to get that information.

Now if we could just get it to STOP AUTOPLAYING VIDEO PREVIEWS. I know the marketing people say it "enhances engagement". I don't care. I already subscribe to your service, I'd like to be able to scroll through the list in peace.

I'd also like that list to actually stop when it hits the end (both vertically and horizontally), rather than wrapping around (or at least have some very distinct marker where it wraps around). I much prefer "okay, you've seen everything on offer (make a choice)" to just starting to get the uneasy feeling you've seen these particular selections before.

They've had NEW for years, and it NEVER shows what is actually new. Always have to find that info elsewhere. Will this be different, or just re-named?
