Netflix now lets you give two thumbs up for stuff you really like
- Netflix has announced the ability to give content two thumbs up on its service.
- It will offer even more specific recommendations for content receiving two thumbs up.
Netflix has used its thumbs up/thumbs down rating system for several years now, replacing the previous star rating system back in 2017. Now, the streaming colossus has announced a change to the thumbs up/down rating system, introducing a third option.
Netflix announced that it’s now rolling out the ability to give content two thumbs up (in addition to thumbs up and thumbs down). The feature is being pushed out today on Android, iOS, web, and TV apps. So what does giving two thumbs up actually mean?
Well, this obviously denotes that you love the content rather than merely liking it as per a single thumbs up. But the streaming service says giving something two thumbs up also means that it will offer even more specific recommendations based on this content.

“For example, if you loved Bridgerton, you might see even more shows or films starring the cast, or from Shondaland [the production company behind Bridgerton – ed],” Netflix explains.
This seems like a pretty sensible way for Netflix to improve its content recommendation algorithms. Then again, you could also argue that five stars with the previous star rating system was the equivalent of two thumbs up anyway. Nevertheless, you should be seeing the addition of two thumbs up right now.
