Netflix is adopting the TikTok way to make users explore the content on their app. The streaming service introduced a new feature called ‘Fast Laughs’ in its app on iPhone that will help you see short snippets from movies, sitcoms, comedy routines, and television shows available on Netflix.
‘Fast Laughs offers a full-screen feed of funny clips from our big comedy catalog including films (Murder Mystery), series (Big Mouth), sitcoms (The Crew) and stand-up from comedians like Kevin Hart and Ali Wong’, Netflix said through a blog post.
One can access the feed through the bottom navigation menu by clicking on the Fast Laughs tab. Clips will start playing – when one ends another begins, ‘to keep the laughs coming’.
Fast Laughs also lets you add series, films and stand-up specials to your list, or start viewing them immediately. You can also share the clips individually on Whatsapp, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter so your friends can get in on the fun too.
Netflix says that Fast Laughs is available now for iPhone users in select countries, whereas it’ll be testing the feature on Android soon.
