Netflix finally lets you turn off autoplay video previews

07 Feb 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

After Netflix in 2015 refreshed its user interface, many users have been complaining about autoplay video previews. Netflix now finally lets you turn off autoplay.

Turn off Netflix autoplay

We are not referring to automatic playback of the next episode in a TV series - most users seem to find this very useful - but instead autoplay previews while browsing Netflix's interface. Netflix's autoplay previews look like this.

Many users seemingly find this autoplay behavior annoying and the feature has been one of the most common complaints about Netflix's user interface since the introduction in 2015. Rejoice! Netflix now lets you turn off the feature. And do it individually for each user profile. - "Some people find this feature helpful. Others not so much. We’ve heard the feedback loud and clear — members can now control whether or not they see autoplay previews on Netflix," the company announced. Here is how to deactivate autoplay previews from the 'Autoplay controls' menu:
  • Sign in to Netflix via a web browser
  • Click 'Manage Profiles' in the menu
  • Select user profile
  • Uncheck 'Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices.' Netflix says that they may be a short delay before the change takes affect. You can force it by switching to another user profile and then back to your own profile.

    Goodbye Netflix autoplay
