Netflix gives you the option to skip intros in TV shows. But it doesn̵
Skip intro automatically
Once installed, this free browser extension automatically clicks the “Skip Intro” button when it appears in your web browser. All you need to do is go to the Google Chrome Web Store and download it on your computer.
To do this, go to the “Auto Skip Intro” list and click the blue “Add to Chrome” button.
You do not have to enable the extension manually; it will start running once the installation is complete. If a Netflix video is already playing in a tab, you will need to reload it for this extension to work.
In addition, “Auto Skip Intro” skips past replays of previous episodes that are often played at the beginning of a new one. This functionality is also enabled by default.
Auto Skip Intro does the job, but you can’t personalize the experience at all. For example, if there’s a show you prefer to watch the intros for, your only option is to disable or remove the Auto Skip Intro extension.
Netflix Extended is for those looking for more control. As with Auto Skip Intro, you don’t have to manually skip intros on Netflix. But besides that, it is also equipped with more tools that allow you to customize various other elements of your Netflix web player.
Once you install it from the Chrome Web Store, Netflix Extended will work automatically, skipping intros and replays without you having to lift a finger.
Moreover, it adds a green dot to your Netflix player in Chrome. Hover over and click on the little gear icon for more functions and settings.
On the “Assistant” tab you can choose whether to skip previews and intros.
In the same section, you’ll find an option to censor items that could potentially ruin the show for you, such as episode descriptions, thumbnails, and more. You can also adjust the playback speed on the “Video” tab.
