Almost a year after Netflix introduced its shuffle play button, HBO Max has too launched its own. However, unlike the Netflix version that randomly plays shows and movies from across the service’s catalog based on your viewing history, HBO Max’s is pretty limited in scope. When you tap the shuffle button, the service will randomly pull episodes from one of the 45 shows included in the feature. It is also currently only available on the service’s desktop interface.

It’s unclear whether HBO Max plans to expand the number of programs in the list that can be played at random. WarnerMedia’s service also hasn’t said whether the feature will eventually be available in its apps, though it’s hard to believe it will remain a desktop exclusive. When Netflix first introduced its “play something” button, the company initially made it available only on TV devices. However, six months later, Netflix released it for Android devices and told us that testing for iOS devices would begin in the following months.
