Netflix stops showing user reviews




Netflix will no longer show which ratings users have given in films and series. Starting next month, the reviews are no longer visible, and according to Netflix itself, the removal is due to the decline in use.

Netflix logo The video streaming service has indicated this in a message to its users, which has been put online by, among others, Gizmodo. Until July 30 it is still possible to leave a review of a movie or series on the Netflix site, but after that this is no longer possible. From mid-August, the reviews will no longer be made transparent to users. This applies to the desktop version of Netflix, because the reviews on the mobile apps are not yet visible.

In his message to users, Netflix informs that the decision has been taken because the use of the reviews has declined in recent times. Probably Netflix wants users to use the recommendations of the system itself to select content.

Earlier this week, it appeared that Netflix may want to issue a more expensive subscription form, under the name Ultra. It would currently be tested, but it does not contain any new functionality. The functionality of other subscriptions would be lowered, making the Ultra subscription the only thing that you can watch on four screens simultaneously. It is still unclear whether and when the new subscription structure will be introduced.
