While Netflix is the arguable soul and heart of us millennials, (we need to binge-watch on it at least once a week) there are some Netflix traits that are downright annoying and can make you dislike the OTT platform a bit. Among them is the autoplay preview feature that lurks in the bottom right corner to attack us with unwanted content. Now, it turns out, you can easily disable the feature on Netflix. Read on to know more.
