The Icons Netflix Subscribers Use For Their Profiles Are Now Fully Customizable

The monthly list of what’s coming and going in the next month wasn’t the only thing Netflix dropped on Wednesday. In a new video that debuted on the streaming giant’s YouTube page, they announced that subscribers’ profiles — what Netflix customers use to differentiate and customize their viewing preferences from others who use the same account — are now more customizable. Specifically, Netflix users can select from a range of new profile icons based on original characters like Stranger Things‘ Steve Harrington and Orange is the New Black‘s Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren.

Options from One Day at a Time, Fuller House, Jessica Jones and the new Queer Eye are also available for use in up to five profiles per account. In a statement on the company blog, Netflix explained that August marked the five-year anniversary of the profile’s initial inclusion:

Today we are announcing an evolution of profiles. The profile icons you’ve used for the last five years are getting a fun makeover. We’re also introducing a bunch of new icons — including some of the most beloved characters from Netflix shows and movies. Get excited, things are about to get a lot more personal.

Users might find this personalized touch a welcome one, and as streaming services grow more and more competitive, this can only help Netflix as they continue to rise.
