Netflix iOS app will soon allow users to remove titles from ‘Continue Watching’

Netflix has announced that it will soon release an update to allow removing titles from ‘Continue Watching’ in its app for iOS and iPadOS. The new feature will be released by June 29 for subscribers to organize their unfinished shows, movies, anime and others.

Netflix ‘Continuing Watching’ row on Android

Currently, the ability to edit ‘Continue Watching’ videos is available in the Android version of video streaming service. iOS users have been requesting for the same feature on their devices for some time because it will allow them to easily declutter their list.

Although the ‘Continue Watching’ list is designed to deliver convenience for subscriber to quickly pick up a show or movie where the left it from, it gets annoying too. As per the streaming service’s algorithm, every title a subscriber has ever left unfinished is listed in that section, even the ones which they do not like and do not intend on watching again.
