Netflix recently released a minor update for its official Netflix for Android app. The update promises an “enhanced playback experience” for both phones and tablets and also includes an additional installation method for users facing problems in installing.
Netflix for Android has received many updates and enhancements during the past few months, including an improved interface, better volume controls and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich support. With this new update, the video playback experience has certainly improved but it could still be better. Also, Wi-Fi can be improved a little.
The official change-log for this update is:
– Enhanced playback experience on phones and tablets
– Improved stability

After many users faced problems in installing the app, Neflix has added an alternative installation method.
