Every player has to watch these unskippable cutscenes regardless of the device they are playing on. But why? The reason is quite simple. These 'annoying' cutscenes are important for the plot of the quest. If you skip them then you end up missing an essential incident of the quest and might get confused later.

What happens when you close the game in the middle of a cutscene?

Closing the game while it is playing a cutscene may seem like a good idea to get rid of it. But it won't skip it. On the contrary, when you end up opening and playing Genshin impact again you will see the cutscene being replayed.

No matter whether you are on PC, mobile, Ps4, or any other device you will have to watch the cutscene if you want to finish a quest.

This is a surprisingly divisive issue with several players calling for a feature to make cutscenes in Genshin Impact skippable. Since you can't skip them make sure you enjoy them fully by fixing missing audio issues, server connection failure, etc beforehand.
