The profiles function on Netflix never really left a lot of room for customisation. You’re assigned a smiley face on a coloured background and that was more or less it. Now, the streaming company is letting you customise your little face with over 100 different options.
For example, you can choose headshots from iconic Netflix shows like Queer Eye, Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, and heaps more. Look at them. LOOK.
If real faces aren’t your vibe, you can give your plain smiley a bit of a makeover with moustaches and glasses and shit, or just make it a dog or something. Those options have been around for a little while already, but they’ve been given an updated and fresh look, which you can see below.
According to the company, these icons will be rolling out over the coming weeks. It hasn’t been specified exactly how to change your profile look, but I’d wager it’s as simple as hitting up the settings section.
Hell, have some fun with it and call out your housemates for not pitching in. Why the fuck not, you know?
It’s a cute way to celebrate the five year anniversary of profiles on the streaming platform, even if it is something small. Netflix also put together a fun little video featuring the Queer Eye crew which you can check out below.Image: Netflix
