Netflix is testing out a button that lets users skip a TV show's title sequence

It seems many users are now seeing the feature - it isn't clear how widespread it is at this time, but it appears to have been rolling out in greater numbers over the past couple weeks. What's more, the opening sequence will be automatically skipped in case the episodes are auto-playing.

Originally, Netflix quelled the rumors of the buttons full-time addition, telling The Verge it was merely a test exercise and that nothing was confirmed.

Apart from the Skip Intro button, the streaming platform also announced that it will be replacing its old five-star rating system with a new thumbs up or down feature.

Of course there are some people who prefer their intros.

The "Skip Intro" does save you from the boredom of the title sequence. Netflix too didn't clarify whether it will be available on all of their shows.

Netflix revealed on Friday that its new "Skip Intro" button has been made available to some users. Now you can, if you are a Netflix (NFLX) subscriber. PC Magazine reports that the streaming site is also looking to replace its rating system from its current 5 stars to a thumbs up or thumbs down.

Spectacular opening credits sequences have been a hit with many fans of shows like Game of Thrones, Jessica Jones, and Stranger Things to the point.

Experienced Netflix users know that while the opening credits may be interesting and exciting the first time around, when you're binge-watching, it can get pretty annoying to watch the same opening over and over again.

Stop judging, Netflix! You can't have it both ways!
