CALIFORNIA – One does not have enough time to watch an entire episode to watch the best moments of laughter. Netflix has taken notice of it and launched a new feature termed as ‘Fast Laughs’.

For the time being, the new feature is only available in selected countries on iOS devices and android users will get it in a few days. A quick look at the feature shares resemblance to TikTok and Instagram reels.

At the moment, different short clips from the series Big Mouth or stand-up comedy specials like Jerry Seinfeld and Ali Wong are being showcased. In case a user finds a clip interesting, there is an option to save the title of the film and watch it later within the app.
