What is Continue watching?

The continue watching feature in video streaming platforms allows users to resume watching content from where they left off. This feature is designed to make it easier for users to pick up where they dropped off, without having to search for the video or remembering at which point of the video they dropped.

Typically, the continue watching bar is placed above the other content so that the viewer is reminded of what they left before they check other content.

The continue watching feature is often used by users who are watching a TV series or a movie in multiple sittings, or who may have been interrupted during a viewing session. By providing an easy way to resume watching, the feature can help increase user engagement and satisfaction with the OTT platform.
