Disney Plus adds 'Continue Watching' section so you can easily pick up where you left off

From CNET: Disney Plus added a feature that its million of users will no doubt be glad to see: the ability to easily track how far you've got in the movies and shows you're watching. You'll find the "Continue Watching" row in your menu now, with progress bars indicating how much is left in that 500th Frozen rewatch or your 30th viewing of The Mandalorian's third episode.

Fans complained about the basic feature's absence after the streaming service's Nov. 12 launch, but it's not the only thing it was missing -- only last week did a "resume" button appear on a series you're watching. Before this, you'd have to scroll through episodes until you found the one you'd gotten to.

Disney's Netflix competitor costs $7 a month and launched Nov. 12 in the US, Canada and the Netherlands. It hit Australia and New Zealand last week, and will come to the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy and Spain on March 31. It has a vast library of content from Disney's media empire -- including its own back catalog, Fox, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic.

The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
