Its like unlocking a secret code!

We’ve all done it, scrolled endlessly through Netflix, trying to find something new and exciting to watch. But what am I in the mood for? Movie or show? What genre? The list of questions goes on. Either we find something new to watch, good or not, or we put on something we’ve seen several times and feel disappointed with the whole experience. Well, there’s a way to eliminate all that endless scrolling because the Netflix codes are here!

This is different from the “Surprise Me” option that already exists. There are codes you can type to bring up a specific feature or an entire genre for you to explore. The specificity can be exact, like classic war movies, is 48744 or broader, like documentaries, is 6839. Whether you know what you want to watch or not, these codes can at least help you narrow your search. And once you remember some of the ones you want to return to, you can always discover new shows or movies within that same genre.

Here’s How It Works

How simple is that? But seriously, where has this secret been? Employees and some form of AI are responsible for making these codes. The codes help Netflix break everything down into categories that help users now find programs on the platform. But with these codes released to the public now, all users can search for anything and everything, just like the system.

The full list of codes is crazy long, but here is just a sample of what you can find:
