Don't you hate it when you can't decide on a movie? With the array of options Netflix and other streaming sites have to choose from, it can be nearly impossible to pick something to watch. And if you're indecisive like I am, you know how stressful this process can be. Action, horror, rom-com—oh my! I can't even decide between Coco Puffs and Lucky Charms for breakfast, so how am I supposed to pick one movie from thousands of choices?
The answer: And Chill. This automated messenger robot (named "And Chill") was created to give movie recommendations—and it gets better. The bot actually asks you questions and uses your answers in order to give the best possible recommendation.
All you have to do is visit their website and click "Message Us." The bot handles the rest.

And wallah! We now have a personalized movie recommendation. So if you've got an upcoming Netflix date, you can breathe easy knowing that And Chill has your back.
