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.

Why didn’t Netflix release these features years ago?
There are websites which have tried to do this, but Netflix has made it harder for them to get that information.
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.
