Netflix Is Testing An Instant Scene-Replay Function
Whenever your binge-watching a show or even watching a movie, you might get distracted and miss a vital moment. Or you might simply want to replay a certain moment on the show. While typically, you’d have to rewind and fast forward in order to replay a scene. Now, Netflix is testing a new feature that will allow users to replay a certain part of the show with a click of a button.
The L.A. Times reports that Netflix has begun testing a new function that allows users to pause whatever they’re watching and rewind a scene with the click of their remote. The new feature pops up on your screen after scenes. The function is only available for select original and licensed content. At this point, Netflix hasn’t decided whether they will permanently implement this feature on their service.
“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 spokesperson for Netflix said. “Right now we’re just looking to learn from it and may or may not roll it out more broadly in the future.”
This is one of the many new features that Netflix has tried to test out this year. They recently introduced their “smart download” feature which deletes episodes of TV shows after the user finishes watching it and downloads the next episode.
