Never-you-mind the fact that another platform out there is plenty happy with their current ability to stream Netflix. That’s not important. What is important, is that the folks over at Netflix freely admit that Android is blowing up, and that “it would be stupid of us to ignore that.” Yes. Android is blowing up, and it would be stupid of Netflix to ignore that — we second that wholeheartedly. But, alas, that doesn’t mean the Netflix app we’ve all been waiting for is coming out any time soon.
Here’s the quote from one Netflix employee who was taking questions from folks on Reddit:
“I just know we’re actively hiring Android devs. I wish I knew more about a timeframe for you. Good things come to those who wait. Netflix is essentially a tech company and with the way Android is blowing up it would be stupid of us to ignore that.”
So, while it’s not an official confirmation in much the way we’d like, it does strengthen the fact we already know Netflix is working on an Android app. This just means they’re still working on the app, and haven’t pushed it into the background. Great news today, folks. Great news.[via Android Central]
