How to Disable Playback Controls on Netflix with Screen Lock

With this new Netflix feature you can lock your smartphone’s screen so you won’t accidentally push any buttons.

Netflix just added a very welcomed feature on their Android app. It’s called Screen Lock and it hides all those buttons that show up when you touch the playback screen.

This will let you watch your preferred movies and shows without fearing you’ll tap a button on the screen while you hold your device.

You will now notice the Screen Lock on the bottom left corner of the screen. Touch it once to block playback controls.

While locked, touching the screen will show a lock. Touch it twice to unlock playback controls if you want to change some settings or juts quit.

What do you think about this? Did you find it useful?
