Netflix finally added a button to skip the opening credits”

According to The Verge, the "Skip Intro" button also allows you to skip the intros that start after a show's cold open.

A Netflix spokesperson told CNN that the feature is one of "hundreds" they do every year to try and make their product better.

As we've seen with Netflix when it comes to show ratings numbers, the company is keeping details of the feature close to the vest.

Netflix is testing a new "skip intro" option.

Of course there are some people who prefer their intros. The button pops up when the title sequence begins on not only Netflix original shows like Jessica Jones and Stranger Things, but also your favorite third-party shows. There's no word yet on when or if the feature will be available to all users. Netflix too didn't clarify whether it will be available on all of their shows. Rumors surrounding the feature circulated on social media platforms - from twitter to Reddit - for the past month, hidden in title sequences for shows like House of Card, The Office, and Ironfist. The feature is ideal for when you've reached the cliffhanger end of an episode and need to know what happens next immediately. Back in the dizz-ay, users could rate series on Netflix with a scale of 1 to 5 stars.

Binge-watchers across the world find it hard to bear the opening credits of shows and repetitive music that plays along every time.

Netflix has already tested its new ratings system on a select number of users. However, it could be argued that when you're binge watching a few episodes at a time, it can get a little tedious having to sit through the credits again for another episode.
