We get it. You’ve had a hard day, and you don’t have the energy to decide which episode of your favorite series to watch.

Netflix gets you, too.

The streaming service has reportedly been considering a new idea that will enable viewers to pick a random episode.

The feature, called “Play a Random Episode,” is currently being tested on the Android app. Shows to which it applies include The Office, Arrested Development, New Girl, and Our Planet.

“We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app,” Netflix told Deadline in a statement. “These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent.”

We’ll have to wait and see whether the “Play a Random Episode” feature extends to the rest of Netflix’s wares.
