Sometimes all we need is a good laugh, right? Lucky for us, Netflix is ready to give us exactly that. This past week, the streaming giant launched its latest feature, and we've got a feeling our Netflix and Chills are about to get a whole lot funnier.
That's right. On Wednesday, March 3rd Netflix officially introduced us to 'Fast Laughs.' And, well, it's exactly as it sounds: A feed dedicated to snippets of funny clips, whether they be from our favorite stand-up specials or romcoms; Clips that look like we'd just caught 'em off of TikTok.
We’ve been working in the kitchen ALL DAY to bring you our new Fast Laughs feature, now are you going to eat it or not? pic.twitter.com/pW7NrRkmTN— Netflix Is A Joke (@NetflixIsAJoke) March 3, 2021
Then again, instead of Doja Cat or Megan the Stallion, we'll be watching comedic legends like Jerry Seinfeld bless us with 30-second (+/-) laughs. What could be bad, right? But he's not the only one who'll be taking to our screen. Gems such as Schitt’s Creek and Big Mouth will also be featured in the latest update, and we couldn't be more excited.
But there's more to Netflix's latest gimmick than a quick laugh or two. In fact, Fast Laughs will even include an "LOL" button that'll unleash a burst of crying emojis upon contact. And with about 100 curated daily clips to choose from; We've got a feeling we'll be shedding lots of tears.
“We wanted to give members a fun, fast, and intuitive way to discover our catalog by letting these comedic moments across genres speak for themselves in a mobile-native, full-screen experience,” Netflix explained of the decision. Consider us impressed.
As for how we can get started with our scrolling? Any users with an iPhone in English-speaking countries can try it out for themselves with the iOS app. Unfortunately for our little ones, they'll have to wait to join in on the fun. Fast Laughs has yet to make its way to Netflix kids' profiles.
And honestly? Perhaps it's better that way (no offense, Kevin Hart)... And on that note, excuse us. We've got some Netflix calling our name. Stay tuned!
