How to search for Netflix content
With the voice command
You can search for specific content by naming the title of what you want to find followed by the app. For example, “Money Heist on Netflix”.
You can also do a general search by genre, actor, director or other. Netflix content related to your query will appear among the list of results.
From the Netflix app
In the Netflix app menu, the magnifying glass icon allows you to search for specific content. Depending on the precision of the keywords you enter, several content will appear to best match your query. For example, if you enter a title that is not in the Netflix listings, other titles that are similar in genre, director or actors will be suggested.
To find Netflix content to watch, you can also browse Netflix suggestions in the many categories offered. The more content you watch, the more the recommendations will be tailored to your tastes.
