According to The Verge, the feature has been rolling out to users over the past few weeks, and it should be widely available soon. And if episodes are auto-playing for you, in many cases the opening sequence will be skipped automatically. So far, the button has only been seen on the web version of Netflix.
Apart from the Skip Intro button, the streaming platform also announced that it will be replacing its old five-star rating system with a new thumbs up or down feature. Until now, those who were exhausted of hearing the same jingle for the tenth time during a binging session used the right arrow key to skip a couple of frames, but that always left them either watching the last seconds of the intro or missing the first seconds of the show.
Netflix is constantly trying to improve user experience on the streaming platform, always experimenting with different features.
Many of us spend a great deal (or too much) of our time Netflix and chilling.

Of course, if Netflix really wanted to help people binge more easily, they could just get rid of the "Are you still watching?" prompts.
This week, the 5-star rating system was removed from the service in exchange for a "thumbs up- thumbs down" rating. Clicking it allows the viewer to avoid the unnecessary waste of minutes and jump straight into the action...even if the show has a cold opening, which is a bit of the show followed by the intro, then the rest of the show. The new button to skip the opening credits will have you like, "Best friend's bachelorette party, what?" What do you think of Netflix's other upcoming changes?
