The Netflix mobile app is getting previews! Well, the iOS version is getting previews right away and the Android version will “soon.” Still, for anyone who has used Netflix over the years and wanted to see clips from a show that looked interesting, we’re almost there.
If you use Netflix on your TV, you’ll know about previews. Netflix introduced them last year as video clips that play as you jump from show to show or movie to movie. Netflix says that these aren’t just trailers and are instead “specially designed video synopses” that give you an overview of each. I don’t really care, I just know that I love them.
On mobile, you’ll get see these Netflix previews vertically, so you can keep browsing as they play without having to turn your phone sideways. You can swipe or tap on your screen to get to the next preview too. If you look at the image at the top of this post, you’ll see what that new Previews section will look like.
We’ll let you know when Previews rollout on Android.
