Netflix: Should I play this movie?
Me: No no I'm just looking at it for a second
Netflix: I'll put it on
Me: I'm just literally reading what it is
Netflix: It's playing 🙂

I'd say the Netflix autoplay thing was a perfect example of prioritizing "user engagement" over user experience.
Removing control from the user should always be done with the user's best interests in mind. I actually can't think of a single scenario where autoplay improves UX. https://t.co/eLsqjruWox
