Today, the American video streaming giant, Netflix has unveiled a short video feature for children -“Kids Clips”, which is its latest move to attract young users.
This feature is available on Netflix’s iOS app and allows users to watch short films from the company’s current library of children’s shows and movies. On the basis of present and upcoming content, Netflix promises to add fresh video segments every day.
Netflix is experimenting with some new features in order to provide customers with more video options. The move also appeals to YouTube users who want to watch short videos.
Netflix has now entered into mobile gaming with five new titles for Android customers, speaking of fresh trials. The Netflix app has these games. However, they must be downloaded through the Google Play Store. Two of the games are based on the Netflix series “Stranger Things,” while the remaining three are casual games.
It’s akin to Netflix’s ‘Fast Laughs’ function, which debuted earlier this year. Netflix shows amusing clips from various shows and movies in this section of the app, which is displayed in a vertical manner.
The Kids Clips feature is based on Fast Laughs, but the videos will be displayed horizontally, similar to how movies and shows are shown. Fast Laughs uses a system similar to TikTok and Instagram Reels, in which you swipe vertically to see videos.
This appears to be just another effort for Netflix to broaden its offers while also providing new opportunities for viewers to discover content on the network.
“Kids Clips” was described by Netflix as a test based on the prior “Fast Laughs,” which offered short comedy videos. Users can also rank the company’s most popular shows, providing them another chance to identify shows they might enjoy.
The video for “Kids Clips” will be similar to “Fast Laughs,” but it will be displayed on full screen and maybe seen horizontally instead of vertically on the phone. Children can only view 10 to 20 brief films at a time to preserve their eyesight.
The function will be available in the United States, Latin American Spanish-speaking countries, and markets including Canada, Australia, and Ireland starting this week.
