New Delhi: Streaming giant Netflix is all set to launch two new features that aim to help families connect with their favourite shows and films.
According to Mashable India, the streamer will be launching an update to the platform that is a ‘bi-weekly kids recap email’ that will be sent to parents from Netflix, which will contain information about their child’s preferences and tastes.
Recommendations based on their kid’s favourite shows and movies, printable colouring sheets and activities inspired by their kid's favourite characters, top themes or topics charts that show the types of programs their kid enjoys the most, and tips for how to use their kid's features on Netflix; are going to be included in the mail.
The second update, as reported by Mashable India is the introduction of the 'Kids Top 10 rows', which will showcase the most popular children's content in the subscriber's country.
If this information will be available to a subscriber, then it would be much easier for them to discover and explore various kid-friendly content on the platform.
