Netflix for Android updated with improved UI and volume controls

For all you TV and movie watchers Netflix for Android has just received another update today. We aren't seeing much regarding changes to the phone interface but the tablet UI has improved a little, especially with volume controls. I guess the first attempt for on-screen volume adjustment wasn't sitting well with the folks from Netflix.

As you can see from the image above, they have updated the general look and feel of the on-screen volume control for tablets. With a tap on the screen you have full access to all the forward and rewind capabilities as before, but just like the update back in February you now can control the volume with a quick and easy slide.

Now a large bubble appears that makes increasing or decreasing the volume extremely simple, and the chat box appears for controlling subtitles and more. Overall the change is pretty minor, but apparently Netflix felt the previous implementation wasn't good enough. We are hearing a few tips that stability has improved for some Motorola devices that were having issues with streaming. Netflix also claims to have increased stability and fixed a few lingering bugs. Get it now and enjoy!

    Wow, this new “volume control” is groundbreaking
    stuff from Netflix!  I guess I should expect this, however, as Netflix
    doesn’t seem to have its priorities in mind when they make changes.  I
    ditched Netflix a while back, and am now much more satisfied with my DISH, and
    the Blockbuster @ Home movie package.  I have access to over 100,000
    titles, and with my Sling Adapter and the free DISH Remote Access app I can
    take it all with me on the go.  I use it on my Android, but it works on
    all sorts of devices and operating systems.  Whereas Netflix is concerned
    with a “sound control bubble”, DISH just added another 6,000 titles
    to the streaming library last month!  A DISH coworker told me about the BB
    package, and with the remote access app I have complete control of my movies
    anywhere I go!

    The app still sucks.  It’s slow, looks terrible, and has a million and one bugs.
