The Netflix mobile app now allows you to lock the screen during playback to prevent unnecessary operations.
Netlix subscribers who are used to watching their favorite TV series from a smartphone screen will be happy. The platform is deploying its application updates to Android to integrate a very useful new feature.
Now, while reading the program, users can lock their screens. This new feature takes place directly next to the button next to the lower navigation bar, which allows you to view episodes, change the language or go to the next episode.
When activated, the screen lock deletes all other control buttons to prevent accidental presses, such as pausing or accidentally starting the next episode. Then press the lock button twice to return to the normal display of the Netflix control.
