Netflix finally allows you to disable annoying autoplay previews

Netflix has now added a new option that will allow you to disable autoplay features across all devices. Netflix right now provides two different autoplay settings that you can turn on or off.

  • When you watch TV shows with multiple episodes, you can automatically play the next episode using autoplay without needing to manually select it.
  • When you browse Netflix, you can automatically play trailers using autoplay to get a preview of a TV show or movie.

Both the above behaviors can be customized based on your needs. To turn autoplay on or off:

  • Sign In to Netflix from a web browser.
  • Select Manage Profiles from the menu.
  • Select the profile you’d like to update.
  • Check or uncheck the option to Autoplay next episode in a series on all devices.
  • Check or uncheck the option to Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices.

There may be a delay before the setting takes affect. If you want to change the settings immediately, you can force an update by switching to another profile, then switching back to your profile.
