The BBC has today announced that it will soon be bringing some new features to its iPlayer, expanding upon the already existing features that are available on the platform.

One of the biggest new features is called Live Restart, it allows users to jump back to the start of a show that is being aired live without having to wait for that program to finish, meaning that it you catch a live show in the middle or anywhere in-between you no longer have to worry, just restart.

On top of this the BBC also announced an upcoming feature that will be included in the update, allowing users to resume watching a show on a smartphone and then pick up where you left off on a different device.

In order to get this feature working you do need to be signed into iPlayer, but once you are it will automatically cue up any episodes that you are part-way through on another device, allowing you to instantly pick up where you left off on another device.

Cross-device resume will initially roll out to computers, tablets and mobiles and then TV devices soon after.

They will also be adding a new My Programmes section to the iPlayer service that allows users to view a list of shows that they are currently watching, as well as ones that they have added to their favourites.
