As 3D Touch becomes an older feature, more and more developers are adding 3D Touch options to their apps. Apple now has 3D Touch Quick Action options for nearly every stock app it makes. Netflix made sure it didn't lag far behind. Like other apps, when you activate 3D Touch by hard pressing the icon, a menu of different Quick Action options "pop" out. For Netflix, you’re able to select Search, My List, Trending Now, Continue Watching, or Share Netflix. This allows you to immediately continue watching the show on Netflix you were previously watching. Here’s how to use 3D Touch to continue watching Netflix.
