Everyone’s favorite movie and TV streaming service on Android just received a rather sizable update this afternoon that should make a few users happy. While the entire streaming quality debate is still a hot topic for Netflix, they’ve just updated the app with improved features and a few bug fixes. Read on to see what’s new in the latest Netflix for Android.
Back in December Netflix got the go-ahead to add social features and sharing into their service, but we’ve yet to see that feature actually arrive. It’s slated for sometime in 2013, so we’ll see. That isn’t here yet, but you’ll want to check out what’s new today from their latest upgrade.
This is also the first update since September when Netflix redesigned the UI to better support both Android smartphones and tablets. Today Netflix is pushing and update out for Android, and here’s what is new. You’ll get the option to increase the font size for subtitles, something I’m sure many will be happy to see. They’ve enhanced second screen support, improved playback stability (we hear that every time) and lastly, miscellaneous bug fixes.
It isn’t anything major but we’ll take the small changes, improvements, and performance tweaks as we get them. Netflix video playback still could be improved on Android if you ask us, but we regress. So we must ask. Do you use Netflix, or have you switched to Redbox Instant or some of those other options available?[via Play Store]
