Netflix updated its iOS application earlier this month to support 1080p videos as well as AirPlay Streaming, leaving many Android owners quite envious their video streaming app didn’t get any love. Good news, Android users, as your time has come to receive your own update to your Netflix app, and it’s a pretty good one.
In an update that has just begun to roll out to Android users, Netflix has greatly improved its application by making it an overall fast and snappy experience, which is quite the departure from its previous laggy and stutter-filled experience. Netflix has also updated its Android app to better match Android’s design, such as having its navigation bar including a more traditional button layout. Chromecast users will also be happy to hear the Netflix Android app also plays nice with the device due to improved in-app controls and its less obtrusive interface.
Unfortunately, today’s update still doesn’t bring Netflix’s profiles feature to Android as it has already been available for Apple users for quite some time. Not only have Apple users had profile support, but also PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users as well. Hopefully Android users won’t have to wait too long until they can also get in on the Netflix profile action.
