Have you ever watched a show or movie and just wanted to watch a scene instantly again? Netflix replay might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Netflix is testing a new instant scene replay feature for a few users.
Netflix currently lets users rewind or fast forward to their heart’s content, using the time bar at the bottom. This is pretty standard and most video platforms use this method of forwarding and rewinding. But now the streaming service wants to take your viewing to the next level with instant replays. The Netflix replay feature is being tested on a few selected users at the moment. The feature allows Netflix users to pause selected movie or show and instantly replay of a scene they’d like to watch again.
What makes this feature so cool, is that it pops up at certain scenes in movies and shows which it thinks you’d like to instantly watch again. All this can be done at a click of the button, without having to drag the time bar to the desired place in the movie or show. The streaming service confirmed that it was testing out the Netflix instant replay feature, and is hoping to learn from it.
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.
So, when will the Netflix instant replay feature become available more broadly? Netflix didn’t confirm any set plans for a wide rollout of the feature and will probably make it available if it’s very successful amongst the current users who are testing it out.
Right now we’re just looking to learn from it and may or may not roll it out more broadly in the future.
Do you think this would be a cool feature to have on Netflix?
