Remember that video you started watching on Facebook but never finished because you got distracted by something else? Facebook does.

The social network confirmed to Kurt Wagner of Recode that it is testing a prompt atop its News Feed (web version only) that displays videos users never completed under the headline, “Continue Watching.”

A spokesperson for Facebook told Wagner the test was in its “early stages,” and there is no guarantee that the feature will be rolled out globally.
