Now, customers will have access to the full Netflix catalogue to search, browse, pause, resume and stream movies or TV shows, including Netflix Originals such as Queen’s Gambit, Jingle Jangle and The Crown using just their voice.
Alexa makes searching and browsing for movies and TV shows simple and hands-free – so customers can spend more time enjoying content rather than searching for it. Just say things like, “Alexa, show me comedy movies on Netflix”/ “Alexa, मुझे Netflix पे comedy movies दिखाओ”, or “Alexa, find action movies on Netflix,”/ “Alexa, Action फिल्में दिखाओ Netflix पर” to find your next watch, no matter where you are in the room.
“Customers tell us that they love the convenience of Alexa and being able to use voice to browse and control the content they watch on Echo Show and Fire TV,” said Heather Zorn, Director, Alexa Entertainment. “We are excited to add Netflix to our list of content providers on Echo Show and bring the convenience of Alexa to even more Netflix members.”
Simply say, “Alexa, open Netflix” and log into your profile to get started.
New Video Features
Along with Netflix, Amazon has also rolled out a couple of new video features to enhance the user experience. “In addition to adding more content to choose from, we want to make it easier than ever to search for your next show or movie. We recently introduced a new video home page to provide customized recommendations for what to watch next — simply say, “Alexa, open video home.” New video detail pages also offer more information on the selected series or movie at a glance,” the company said in a statement.
