Netflix has begun rolling out the new individual profiles for its streaming service.

The feature is meant to help all family members by letting everyone have their own settings, viewing history, and queue.

Furthermore, Netflix will start giving everyone suggestions on what to watch next based on their profile and history, thus helping users view similar shows or those belonging to the same genre.

The profiles are coming to all Netflix regions, but it might take up to two weeks before the rollout is available for users everywhere.

Device support could also take some time to kick in, although most platforms are already all set for the new Netflix feature.

The Android and Nintendo Wii platforms will support the new feature later in the fall and in a couple of weeks, respectively.

A couple of days ago, the new profiles were being rolled out for Apple TV users.
