Disney Plus has added a "resume" button to the streaming service. As of Friday, the button will appear when when you navigate to a series you're watching, and clicking it will bring you back to the episode you were in the middle of. Prior to the addition, users would have to scroll through the episodes until they found the one they'd gotten up to.

This follows a report on Tuesday that Disney would be adding a "continue watching" feature to the home screen, like on Netflix, Amazon and Hulu and other streaming services.
