Netflix has begun rolling out short-form comedy clips for its mobile-centric subscribers. Taking a page from social media platform TikTok, Netflix’s clips — dubbed “Fast Laughs,” offer full-screen feed of funny clips from the streamer’s comedy catalog, including movie Murder Mystery; “Big Mouth” series; sitcom “The Crew,” and standup comedians Kevin Hart and Ali Wong, among others.
“You access the feed through your bottom navigation menu by clicking on the Fast Laugh tab,” Patrick Flemming, director, product innovation, wrote in a blog post. “Clips will start playing — when one ends, another begins.”
Fast Laughs is available on iPhone in select countries, and will begin testing on Android devices in the near future, according to Flemming.
