Netflix finally added a button to skip the opening credits

Posted March 20, 2017

"We perform hundreds of tests every year to help make the Netflix member experience better", a spokeswoman for Netflix said. The feature appears to be rolling out quietly, as Netflix hasn't officially acknowledged such a feature exists.

The streaming giant has announced it is testing a new feature that will let you skip the intro before watching an episode you are watching.

Netflix is experimenting with a new button that would change that, giving some users a new clickable square on the intro screen that says "Skip Intro". However, reports suggest that this button is only appearing in select TV shows like Netflix's own House of Cards and Iron Fist.

After the longstanding request of many Netflix users, the option to skip intros has been added. Although if the episodes are on auto-play, the opening sequence will usually be skipped anyway. Will be you be skipping intros?
