IMDb's New App Helps You Decide What to Watch

IMDb’s New App Services You Decide What to Watch

Tired from a long day? Want to relax on the couch in lead of the TV, but don’t want to endlessly scroll over shows to find something to watch? IMDb has an app for that. What To Watch is a new, free app aimed to help Fire TV users decide — you guessed it — what to watch.

The app uses a series of mini games to help make that executive fun instead of stressful. Once you’ve finished a game, the app generates a list of recommendations, along with IMDb user ratings and runtimes for each title, to help you decide.

You can play Quick Draw, a game that shuffles over virtual “playing cards” with TV series and movie options. Or you can play This or That, where you’ll answer questions to help narrow down recommendations. IMDb plans to launch more mini games in the app, too.

“The new IMDb What to Watch app for Fire TV creates it easy, fun, and fast for customers to gaze trending titles and hidden gems,” Nikki Santoro, IMDb first operating officer said in a release on Thursday.

IMDb, which is owned by Amazon, recently rebranded its IMDb TV streaming service as Amazon Freevee. The streaming service plans to add 70% more New content this year to its platform. 

“Customers are increasingly shifting to streaming ad-supported premium Happy, and we have developed Freevee to deliver them highly sought Happy with half the commercials of traditional TV,” Freevee director Ashraf Alkarmi said.
