With this update, Netflix introduced several new filters and sorting options for the “My List” feature. Users can now sort their saved titles. They can sort them by release date, alphabetical order, type (movie or TV show), and the date they added the title to the list. These filters ensure a more organized and efficient browsing experience. Users who have a huge collection of movies and TV shows in their lists will find this feature extremely helpful.

New Haven’t Started and Started Filters

Arguably the most useful addition to the “My List” feature is the “Haven’t Started” and “Started” filters. These filters allow users to sort their saved titles based on whether they have begun watching them or not. This is helpful for users who have a large number of saved titles and need a quick way to navigate through their watchlist.

Improved Mobile Experience

The updated “My List” feature primarily caters to mobile users. This is because the new filters are only available on iOS and Android devices. The update aims to improve the mobile browsing experience by eliminating the need for endless scrolling to find specific titles. Android users will be the first to receive the new feature. If you use an Apple device, expect the feature in the coming weeks.

Swipe to Delete Titles

Another notable update to the “My List” feature is the ability to swipe directly on title cards to remove them from the list. Prior to the update, users had to tap on the title card, navigate to the details page, and then click on the “My List” checkmark icon to remove the title. This new feature now makes the process quicker and more user-friendly.
