Netflix users will no longer be able to leave reviews for movies and television shows on its website by the end of the month, on July 30, according to CNET.

The reviews, which are only visible on the desktop version of the website, will also be taken down permanently in mid-August.

“We have notified members who have used the feature recently,” said Netflix spokesperson Smita Saran in an email to CNET.

The company said it has seen a decline in user reviews over time.

Netflix made another big change to its rating feature just last year. After allowing viewers to rate the programs from one to five stars, the streaming service switched to offering only a thumbs up or down. This feature will remain the same.

The company recently was named the most valuable media company in the world, with 125 million subscribers worldwide. The streaming service narrowly beat out Disney with its stock valued at a total of $153.8 billion in May.
