The online streaming giant, Netflix, has rolled out a new feature for android users. The users will now be able to listen to their favorite shows online without sticking to the screens. This is called an ‘Audio Only’ feature. It is quite similar to podcasts.
In order to enable Netflix audio playback, users will have to click on the Video Off button at the top of the full-screen video player. When the audio-only mode is activated, users will only see a blank screen.
While watching a video, subscribers will see a “video off” button at the top of the full-screen video player mode. Once the video is turned off, a blank screen will appear along with all of the playback controls, like a scrub bar, forward and backward buttons, and speed adjustments.
