Netflix is testing an instant replay feature; here’s what you need to know
Dec 14, 2018
Netflix is currently testing an instant replay function for its movies and TV shows, according to multiple reports.
- The new feature will allow viewers to pause whatever show they’re watching and replay a scene they just watched, according to SlashFilm.
- The act may sound like a simple case of rewind, but it allows the previous scene to automatically replay.
- The option pops up while watching Netflix-specific shows.
However: The feature is merely in the testing phase right now.
Why?: Netflix told The Los Angeles Times the feature will help viewers rewatch their favorite scenes.
- “We’re trying out a feature which gives Netflix members the ability to rewatch favorite scenes and memorable moments with the click of a button,” a Netflix spokesman told the Times. “Right now we’re just looking to learn from it and may or may not roll it out more broadly in the future.”
