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. Thankfully the new feature will compensate for the shows that have cold openings as well, containing different prompts for each. Twitter users began noticing this week that if you hover over the title sequence for some Netflix originals like House of Cards and Iron Fist, that a "Skip Intro" button pops up.
So far, the Netflix "Skip Intro" button isn't available to all users on the site.
The "skip intro" option may not be the cat's pajamas for every viewer, especially for those binge-watching "The Office". According to Business Insider, it is now available on Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Iron Fist, The Office, and Mad Men. The latest one went straight to the heart of most users as the website is now testing a Skip Intro button which was welcomed with many positive reviews, social media accounts roaring with mentions of the utility of the option. Moreover, in case you have opted for the auto-play mode for a specific series, the opening credits will be skipped automatically.

Morelle said that a volcanologist at the scene told her it was the most unsafe incident he had experienced in his 30-year-career. Officials at Sicily's Catania airport announced they would reduce arrivals by half to five flights an hour, due to ash clouds.
Of course, if Netflix really wanted to help people binge more easily, they could just get rid of the "Are you still watching?" prompts.
"Given that star ratings have traditionally been used to indicate quality in entertainment, members were sometimes confused about how to think about rating a title", Netflix said to PCMag via a written statement.
Title sequences are typically pretty short, so to me it's a non-issue. Now, though, you might have to consider another factor as Netflix is testing out a feature that could allow users to skip the opening credits of shows.
