Odds are you've watched your favorite show on Netflix enough times to pick up on the overarching plot no matter what episode you're watching. Of course, you can manually choose an episode at "random," but that takes a lot of work.

Netflix is reportedly testing a Random Episode feature. Android Police spotted the test on Friday. From the screenshots, it looks like the feature would work similarly to shuffle in your music app. Tapping shuffle arrows would let users play a popular or random episode of a show. It's being tested on a specific build of Netflix's Android app, according to Android Police.

Of course, this wouldn't be helpful for all shows -- especially plot-heavy programs like Ozark or Stranger Things. But for those of us who restart Friends or The Office as soon as we finish it, a random play feature has been a long time coming.

Netflix didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
