Sayonara, Instant Queue: Netflix rolls out the smart-sorting "My List"

Ian Paul | Aug. 22, 2013
Call it a smart queue, if you want. Netflix's My List brings intelligence to the now-defunct Instant Queue.

One thing Netflix didn't note in its My List announcement is that the menu at the very top of the home screen on appears to have changed. The company has removed the "Instant Queue" option and replaced it with a drop down list called "Taste Profile," based on screenshots posted to the Netflix blog.

Most likely this new menu includes the rating wizard that helps Netflix get a sense of your viewing preferences by ranking popular titles. It probably houses the "Taste Preferences" questionnaire that also helps Netflix refine its recommendations. Netflix did not specify what other menu options might now be housed under the "Taste Profile" list or if all users would see the new menu option.
