Netflix is bringing its Post-Play feature to Chromecast, making it easier to skip ahead to the next episode when binge watching your favorite TV series.

When an episode ends, Netflix minimizes the credits and queues up the next one, which begins automatically in about 15 seconds. This avoids you needing to dig for your phone or tablet while sitting in awkward silence. 

With movies, Netflix now auto-suggests three similar selections in case you want to extend the cuddle-on-the-couch time.

Netflix says that the feature is coming over the next few days to the company's Android and iOS apps, which both connect to the Chromecast. No software update for Google's streaming hardware is needed to enable the feature.
