Disney+ will soon get the must-have feature that it should have had at launch

  Disney+ will soon get the must-have feature that it should have had at launch The Disney+ launch wasn’t perfect last week, but the service is certainly a success for Disney, with as many as 10 million users having already signed up. Disney+ is cheaper than Netflix, and already features plenty of interesting content that users got to experience from day one. And while Disney+ does come with a feature I've wanted on Netflix for years, it also comes without a critical feature that I’d demand from any streaming service — one that’s been on Netflix all along. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Disney+ had a bumpy start, with many users reporting frequent crashes and even difficulty logging into their accounts. One of the company's first moves to address the issues was to remove certain features, with one of those being the "continue watching" list. Disney has now added the list back to its platform, allowing viewers to pick up a movie or show where they left off.

Most streaming services have a "continue watching" menu section, so it was odd to see its absence from Disney+. While it wasn't quite at the top of the list of users' complaints, it will be nice to quickly jump back into a movie or show without digging through menus. Disney's infrastructure wasn't quite prepared for the number of subscribers that the streaming service brought in. After all, 10 million users signed up during its launch day. However, the popularity of The Mandalorian's Baby Yoda seems to overshadow most negative reactions against the platform.
