If you think you’ve watched everything Netflix has to offer, think again. Netflix recently released a major overhaul to its Instant Queue, the place you can save everything you want to watch later. The Instant Queue is now called “My List,” and it’s designed to help you quickly find the next show or movie you want to watch. “My List” is driven by the same engine that Netflix’s recommendations are based on, so after you save a bunch of TV shows or movies you want to watch later, Netflix uses its algorithms to rank and display your choices based on what you REALLY want to watch first. Goodbye, manual sorting of the past! Hello, automated ranking of the future! “My List” also features notifications when your favorite shows have new seasons available to watch, or when a particular title is about to disappear from the Netflix library altogether. The update has already begun rolling out to users, and you should have “My List” by next week at the very latest.
