If the test passes and Netflix users embrace the feature, the company could roll it out to other devices, according to The edge. For now, the sleep timer is only available on adult profiles.
Many other apps have sleep timers, including audio-focused apps such as Spotify, Pocket casts and Pandora. If you often nod your head while watching Netflix, it might help you avoid waking up without decreasing your device’s battery charge. It should also be easier to keep your spot on a series, as the episodes will not continue to play while you sleep.
