Netflix is doing a “makeover” of its profile icons selection. That’s right! You can now choose from 100 new icons to give your profile a signature flair. The new options include characters from its original shows like Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, Queer Eye, and others. The company wrote in a blog post that they are “thrilled to give you a way to show your fandom and make your connection with Netflix more unique.”
The existing icons are also being updated with little changes. Color changes to the icons (like the super hero and the penguin) as well as additional details are being made. For example, on the mustached man with glasses icon, the sunglasses will now have a gold gradient. Fun stuff.
These updates will be rolling out “over the next few weeks,” according to the announcement. Additionally, Netflix has redesigned the TV interface with a new sidebar and distinct sections for shows and films.
“The new interface was based on rigorous research and testing around how we can make it easier to find titles on TVs, where navigation can feel a bit tougher when you are restricted to just a few buttons on a remote control,” wrote Stephen Garcia, Netflix’s director of product innovation, in a blog post.
With all these upgrades, the user experience can only keep getting better and better.
