Quibi is a new mobile-only streaming service, offering something for people to do while social distancing.

Netflix and chill, more like Quibi and quick bites.

Quibi — which stands for “quick bites” — is a new mobile-only streaming service. Launched earlier this month, the new streaming service offers shows that can be watched within 10 minutes or less.

“Personally, I don’t always have time to watch a full episode of a show that is 46 minutes long. But with Quibi they are short, and I think I would like my subscription if I had one,” said senior Elizabeth Sampson.

Chrissy’s Court” starring Chrissy Teigen and her mom Vilailuck “Pepper Thai” Teigen takes a comedic twist on simple court cases such as who damaged a speaker or who won the rap battle. “No Filter” by TMZ will take viewers inside the newsroom to get a look into how TMZ runs.

The streaming service will have new shows rolling out every week. Movies will be available to watch on the platform but in chapter formats along with unscripted series, Daily Essentials such as recaps on late night talk shows and news and lifestyle programs.

Quibi is now available to stream through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store
