The folks over at Netflix has introduced a couple of announcements (which are for the better, obviously), where the first of them would apply mainly to those who run on Android-powered devices. Netflix has already updated their app for Android, bringing along with it a revamped user interface that claims to deliver snappier covers, smoother scrolling as well as a brand new action and navigation bars. Chromecast users might want to sit up and take notice, as the Netflix app has also been changed somewhat in order to have it play nicer with the Chromecast TV dongle. Some of the changes would include improved lock screen playback controls, too. Of course, since you cannot please everyone all the time, the revamped app still does not come with support for the new profiles in addition to broader HD streaming support.
This particular rollout would not be made available across the board instantly, but there is already an APK file hanging around somewhere on the Internet if patience is not your strongest virtue. Apart from that, the other announcement involves the testing of enhanced content or additional features which will be centered around its original shows, and if that pans out well, Netflix might just additional content to their shows ala DVD.
