Netflix, the US live-streaming giant, launched the “Pour Rire” feature on its mobile app on Wednesday, allowing you to watch short humorous snippets of sample short videos from the TikTok platform.
By opening the new tab, users will be able to view, save or share comic shots from the California company’s extensive catalog.
“Do you want to laugh a little?” Netflix asks in a blog post. “You’ve come to the right place on Netflix, which has loads of possibilities, from hilarious series and movies to hilarious backups.”
The clips can be taken from feature films like Murder Mystery, animated series like Big Mouth, or shows by actors like Kevin Hart and Ali Wong, Netflix says.
“It goes without saying that not all excerpts will necessarily be suitable for all audiences,” the company says.
For Laughs is available for iPhone users in certain countries. Netflix says it wants to test the tab soon on Android mobile devices.
This new feature is part of a series of similar products launched by video or social networking platforms, which seek to appeal to an audience fond of short and ultra-fast videos, the model for which TikTok is known.
At the end of January, YouTube had 3.5 billion daily views of YouTube Shorts in India, as it is currently being tested in beta.
