How to delete movies and series from “Resume Playing” history
Turns out Netflix is fixing the issue and is said to be testing the feature. Our colleagues from the Android Police site were able to take a look. As they explain, a new three-bar tab appears (will appear in any case) at the level of the films and series of your “Resume playing” list. Follow the next steps:
- Open the Netflix app
- Go to the “Resume reading with the profile of…” tab
- Click on three bar tab next to the movie or series you want to delete
- Go through the different options and click on the last one: Remove from playlist
- Confirm deletion
Still according to Android Police, only one person from the editorial staff, in this case the founder of the site, was unable to obtain access to this feature. Let’s hope that Netflix will make it accessible to as many people as possible quickly, just to quickly remove the Death Note adaptation which is interfering with our “Resume Reading” history. At least we can still watch this abomination in time lapse on the Netflix Android app.
