Netflix On Android Gets Profiles And Better Search

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.

Search Updates

Hi! It's me, Meghan.

Perhaps you've noticed some changes in the search results page. I'd like to hear what you think of them.

I'll point out a couple of elements:

We added bigger box shots and better genre matches, as well as a column on the right with movies that you can watch instantly. We also show all formats - so you can tell at a glance, for any movie, if it's available on DVD (and if it's Blu-ray), to watch instantly, or to buy.

We took out the tabs to simplify the page. There's more to come, but I'm interested in hearing what you think of this set of changes. There are still some specific things that you'd like to see happen (like searching synopses, for example), and many of those items are still in progress. I hope you find it easier and more useful.

Holiday Movies

This is what I knew I could count on y'all for. Someone in Netflixland ("Netflixia"?) is looking for holiday movies, and Phatz rises to the occassion. Good work, man.

Happy Holidays, from the blog.

Let's talk about Search (baby)

Hi, Meghan here. I've been looking at ways of making search better. Way better. There are some obvious frustrations, like how hard it can be to find the specific episode of a tv series you want or if you don't know the title of the movie you're looking for and it can't find it by description. But I'm wondering if there are other things you've noticed that could be improved.
