TL;DR

Netflix has announced the ability to give content two thumbs up for its service. It offers even more specific recommendations for content that gets two thumbs up.

Netflix has been using its thumbs up/down rating system for a number of years, replacing its previous star rating system in 2017. Now the streaming giant has announced a change to its thumbs up/down rating system, introducing a third option.

Netflix has announced that it is now rolling out the ability to give content two thumbs up (in addition to thumbs up and thumbs down). The feature is being pushed to Android, iOS, web and TV apps today. So what does giving two thumbs really mean?

Well, this clearly indicates that you like the content rather than just liking it according to a single thumbs up. But the streaming service says giving it two thumbs up also means it will make even more specific recommendations based on this content.

“For example, if you liked Bridgerton, you could see more shows or movies with the cast, or Shondaland [the production company behind Bridgerton – ed]Netflix explains.

This seems like a pretty sensible way for Netflix to improve its content recommendation algorithms. On the other hand, you could also argue that five stars with the previous star rating system were equivalent to two thumbs up anyway. Nevertheless, you should now see the addition of two thumbs up.
