Netflix launches a “Netflix and chill” button


The streaming video service Netflix unveiled its latest invention this weekend—a single button that, when pressed, will dim the lights, activate your phone’s “do not disturb” mode, order take out, and queue up Netflix for an evening of binge-watching. The button, dubbed “The Switch,” makes it easier than ever to “Netflix and chill” and already has become known by that term (internet slang for hooking up in front of the TV).

In a nod to techy do-it-yourself culture, Netflix released step-by-step instructions on its website so people can create and customize their very own switches, linked to apps and connected devices.

The company debuted the branded do-it-yourself tool at the 2015 World Maker Faire in New York this weekend, and is currently accepting submissions for future projects through its “Make It” microsite.
