Netflix has just updated its mobile app to support all Android 2.2 Froyo and 2.3 Gingerbread devices. Until now, the app has only supported a very limited selection of Android devices with the last update to version 1.3 expanding support from 9 to 24 devices. The update today will finally bring Netflix app support to almost all Android devices.
This is great news for Netflix subscribers who have had to rely on leaked APKs to get the app running on unsupported Android phones. Unfortunately, the update still doesn’t support all Android tablets, which have much more suitably sized screens for enjoying a Netflix subscription.
So far, the only tablets that support Netflix are the Lenovo IdeaPad K1 and the Lenovo ThinkPad tablet. The app allows subscribers to stream movies and TV shows over WiFi or 3G connections as well as to manage their DVD queues.
