Netflix App Updated, Now Supports More Android Devices

Netflix for Android has been hit or miss, with the huge variety of Android devices sporting different versions and customizations leaving the app compatible with only 9 Android handsets. But that situation has improved with a new update today that more than doubles the number of Android devices supported.

This Netflix Android app update to version 1.3 now officially lists 24 devices as compatible, including a new Android tablet. The updated information was listed last night on the Android Market, but downloads weren't enabled until today. The devices listed are as follows:

• Casio G’zOne Commando C771 with Android 2.2
• HTC Droid Incredible
• HTC Droid Incredible 2
• HTC EVO
• HTC EVO 3D
• HTC G2
• HTC Thunderbolt
• Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet
• LG Revolution
• Motorola Atrix
• Motorola Droid
• Motorola Droid X
• Motorola Droid X2
• Motorola Droid 2
• Motorola Droid 3
• Samsung Droid Charge
• Samsung Epic 4G
• Samsung Galaxy S
• Samsung Galaxy S 4G
• Samsung Fascinate
• Samsung Nexus S
• Samsung Nexus S 4G

It's interesting to see the Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet listed, considering it was just officially announced this morning. Make sure to check out our hands-on with the new slate. And although it's the only tablet mentioned, the update should work on other Honeycomb tablets as well. By manually installing the APK, some users have found the update to work on other Android slates, including the Motorola XOOM and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
