Over the weekend we released a new version of the Netflix app for Android-powered phones and tablets, making the experience more personalized and improving search..
This new release supports Netflix Profiles, personalizing Netflix for you and everyone in your household. We will ask you who is watching when you first start the app, or you can switch profiles from the left navigation drawer. New profiles can be added on the Netflix Web site.
We have also enhanced the search experience so you can search for your favorite actor or director. You can also search for subjects, think “ice hockey”, “vampire”, or “Italy”.
The update is available now on Google Play.
