The streaming service announced the latest batch of new features on Thursday, including a “fearless” new feature called “fearsome.”
When you watch a movie or TV show, the app will automatically warn you that the content is about to be viewed with “a fearful face.”
This will stop you from watching it with your eyes closed, but you can still hear what’s going on in the background.
The app also lets you share your movie or television show to friends, and when they’re in the same room, you can tell them to “watch this movie with a scared face” in the app.
You can also use the feature to share photos and videos, but only if they’re not too disturbing for your own privacy.
This isn’t the first time Netflix has experimented with these new features, but it’s the first to use them to warn people about a potentially scary movie or show.
It’s unclear how often these new warnings will be enabled for the public, but Netflix told The Verge it plans to continue testing the feature.
“Our fearless feature is designed to remind us that our favorite content and services are safe, but that they can be scary, especially if you don’t know how to navigate the app or have a fearful face,” a Netflix spokesperson said.
