Feel like watching "The Office" or "New Gilr," but can't decide which episode to watch?

Netflix is trying out a feature that would randomly select an episode for you, but it's only available via the Android mobile app.

Among the shows being tested with this new feature are "The Office," "Our Planet," "New Girl," and "Arrested Development."

The Android Police publication first noticed the new feature, which is called "Play a Random Episode." When viewers click the thumbnail, a random episode plays.

The shows offering the feature have a red "shuffle" icon with crisscrossing arrows.


Netflix confirmed the experiment, saying, "We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app. These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent."

In other words, it's kind of.... random.
