Netflix App Jumps In for New Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Posted on Jun 29 2012 - 8:00pm by Glenn

Netflix, the app that lets users watch streaming movies or television shows, has gotten support for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Its minimum requirement remains to be Android 2.2, though, so users who are not using Jelly Bean anytime soon should have no worries.

Netflix is one of the first apps to officially send out an update for the latest version of the popular open-source operating system. Apart from Netflix, Google’s suite of applications including Google+, Youtube, Street View, Maps, and Play Books, among others, has also been announced to carry support for the recently-unveiled Android Jelly Bean. On top of the Jelly Bean support, the Netflix team has also included some fixes for known issues in what is called version 1.8.1 of the app.

Netflix has proven itself a useful and popular app to those looking for some quality entertainment content on their mobile devices. The app itself is free to download over at Google Play, but users need to pay a subscription fee to Netflix to be able to actually enjoy the movies and television shows it offers. Users can then look for titles that strike their fancy on their phone and even begin watching a show in one device then later finish it on another.

Users may also give ratings on the video content they watch, and Netflix will use this information to recommend a list of titles. For first time and particular former members of Netflix, a one month free subscription is available. If users are dissatisfied with the service, they can cancel the subscription. On the other hand, if they want to proceed getting movies and television show episodes, they will be billed for the next month.

Netflix, unfortunately, remains to be available only for subscribers in the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, and Latin America. However, those in these areas seem to like the services the app offers as Netflix enjoys a rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars in the Google Play store.
