Find the Exact Video Moment You're Looking For With the Hulu App's New Scrubber Feature

Most online video players feature some sort of scrubber (the bar at the bottom that lets you skip around in whatever you’re watching), but if you’re on a smartphone, actually trying to use that tool to find the exact right spot is typically more of a hassle than it’s worth. Most of the time, you’re better off just rewatching the first half of your favorite show rather than trying to pick up exactly where you left off.

Thankfully for anyone who’s sick of rewatching the same scenes or dealing with an unruly scrubber, Hulu has come up with a new interface (spotted by Gadget Hacks) that’s a lot easier to use. So now you can stop wasting time and jump to the exact right moment in whatever video you’re trying to watch on your phone.

Using Hulu’s new scrubber is easy. First, make sure you’re using the latest version of the app by checking your respective app store. Then, boot up a video and press down anywhere on the screen that doesn’t already have a button. After a few seconds, the new scrubber should pop up—if you’re using an iPhone 7 or newer you’ll also get some haptic feedback to confirm it’s working.

From here, keep your finger on the screen and simply slide left or right to skip backwards or forwards. The exact timestamp will display in a small gray box just above your finger. Even better, you’ll also get a visual preview of what’s happening onscreen, making it super easy to find the moment you’re looking for.

Once you let go, Hulu will take a second to reload the video. If you’re not paying for the ad-free version, you may also have to suffer through commercials, depending on how far you skip ahead, but that’s a small price to pay for not having to rewatch the first half of that episode you started last night before falling asleep in front of your TV.
