netflix mobile previews

Netflix's mobile app now has a new feature. Mobile previews show a short clip of the show or film you select, so you can choose whether or not you want to watch it.

The previews are about 30 seconds in length and are presented in portrait orientation, so you don't have to turn your phone sideways to watch. They're presented like a slideshow. See one you like? Tap it to add it to your list. Don't fancy it? Swipe or tap the screen to skip to the next preview.

They're basically the mobile version of the video previews, which debuted on the smart TV app last year.

Netflix promises they'll load quickly, and are personalised to your specific taste. Give them a whirl and see what you make of them.

They're live now on the iOS app, and are coming soon to the Android app.
