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.

Wi-Fi Only Playback Now On Android

We know many of you love to watch Netflix on your Android smartphones and tablets. We just launched a new feature where you can select to playback on Wi-Fi networks only. This means that while you can search, browse and enjoy all aspects of the Netflix app on a mobile data connection or Wi-Fi, you can choose (via a "Settings" feature) to playback on Wi-Fi networks only.  Download the new Netflix app and enjoy Netflix!

Android “Ice Cream Sandwich” Gets Netflix

Today we launched support for Android 4.0, also known as “Ice Cream Sandwich.” With this added support, streaming movies and TV shows from Netflix over the Internet will be available on an even greater number of Android devices.

I’m Roma De and as director of product management at Netflix, helping to expand the number of the devices that support streaming from Netflix is a major part of my job. Device expansion is also a key part of the company strategy.

As you may remember, in October we launched a new application in the Android Market to support Android 3.x (Honeycomb) tablets. At the time we also extended Android support to Canada and Latin America for the first time.

I’m glad to say that all phones and tablets that support Android 4.0 will run the new Netflix application. Download the free Netflix app from Android Market and start watching.

Netflix Unveils a New iPad App

Starting today, Netflix members can enjoy a newly redesigned experience for the iPad that makes it much easier to discover and instantly watch TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix.

I'm Zal Bilimoria, and I'm a product manager at Netflix where I lead product innovation for mobile devices. The new app is really a big step forward; it is much more immersive and provides greater focus on our growing catalogue by displaying twice as many titles than the previous interface. In addition, through optimization for touch-enabled tablets, Netflix members can now swipe through rows and rows of titles featuring larger artwork.


Members can enjoy the new Netflix interface on their iPad with iOS 5 by upgrading to the latest version of the Netflix App, available as a free download from the App Store, which will be rolling out to all users in the coming weeks.


More News

And there's more news. Starting today, Netflix members in Latin America can enjoy unlimited TV shows and movies streaming from Netflix on their Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or on their HD TV with Apple TV.


Also, Netflix "Just for Kids" is now available on Apple TV, providing a section that offers a broad selection of TV shows and movies for children 12 and under. You can read more about "Just for Kids" in Todd Yellin's original blog post when we first introduced the section in August.
