With each software update (regardless of whether it is on a piece of hardware or a software), you as the user can expect more or less additional improvements – and the same goes to Netflix for Android. While Verizon and Coinstar has teamed up to give Netflix a run for its money, that does not mean Netflix is just going to sit back and see others gnaw away at their market share in entertainment rentals. With Netflix for Android, they are moving into the mobile arena, offering more support for additional phones while improving performance with software updates after that.
The latest update will nudge the version number up to 1.7.0, where among the bugs fixed, would be the inclusion of a new Facebook sharing feature. With this update, you can now let your mates who reside in Latin America, Canada, the UK, and Ireland, know of your movie viewing habits. There is also a built-in software control that manipulates your device’s volume, and we are glad to report that this update works for Android versions from Android 2.1 Froyo all the way to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich without any hiccups.
