Netflix has finally announced that you can switch off the service from autoplaying trailers whilst you are scrolling, giving users control of what has been one of the service’s biggest bugaboos to date.
To do so you have to sign into Netflix from a web browser, go to Manage Profiles and select the profile you want to update, and then uncheck the option to Autoplay previews while browsing on all devices.
The same menu also includes the ability to uncheck the option to Autoplay the next episode in a series when you reach the end of an episode, though that ability has been there for a while already and has received fewer complaints.
Netflix says there may be a delay before the setting takes effect, and you may need to log out and log back in from either a profile or a whole account (especially on TV media player boxes) in order to force the update.
