Netflix for Android getting update, new interface similar to iPhone version

Last week, capitalizing on Apple’s release of the new iPhone 5, Netflix released an update to the iOS version of their app. Today they started rolling out an update to the Netflix for Android version, mirroring the changes and improvements they made for iOS. The big changes come in the user interface. Along the top of the screen, Netflix now includes an area for items a user is currently watching so they can just tap on the show to resume. When looking at available titles, two options are available for users. One can single tap on a title to open up a page with information about the show like a synopsis, characters, and episodes if applicable. To actually play a title, you just double-tap on a title. Netflix has also made the search function universal throughout the app.

The updated app is still in the process of rolling out to the Google Play store. When available, it will require Android 2.3. After the break, check out a video from Netflix demonstrating the new user interface or use one of the download links to access the app in Google Play.
