Netflix unveiled a new feature today that allows users to get personal.
With families sharing one Netflix account, the on-line streaming content provider debuted the ability to create up to five profiles per account. Each profile will provide a personalized Netflix based on viewing habits and the user’s queue.
The feature will also allow parents to separate their queue from the children’s queue and allow them more parental controls.
The feature has been the subject of speculation for the past several weeks, but it was made official today. It begins rolling out today and should be available to all users within the next two weeks.
“Now everyone in your home can have their own Netflix experience, built around the TV shows and movies they enjoy,” Netflix Chief Product Officer Neil Hunt said in a statement. “No longer will your Netflix suggestions be mixed up with those of your kids, a significant other, roommates, or house guests.”
