Netflix hidden from unlocked, rooted Android devices

Netflix hidden from unlocked, rooted Android devices

Android power users are perhaps already used to the idea that their power does come at a cost. There are quite a few apps or, depending on your phone, functionality that is withheld from users who root or even just unlock their phones to reclaim control they believe to be rightfully theirs. The latest to join that group of root-hating apps is Netflix, which has disappeared from the Play Store listing of such devices. Amusingly enough, the app actually continues to work otherwise. For now, at least.

Netflix for Android gets HDR support (but only for the LG G6)

Netflix has added support for HDR and Dolby Vision to its Android app, but there's a really big catch (for now): it is only available for the LG G6.

Netflix abandons star rating system, replaces it with thumbs

Netflix abandons star rating system, replaces it with thumbs

Last month we learned that Netflix was planning to get rid of its star rating system and replace it with a simplified, less detailed rating system: thumbs up and thumbs down. That system is now rolling out, with users seeing the thumb ratings instead of the stars that have long dotted the platform. At the heart of the problem, according to Netflix, was a misunderstanding of what the stars meant, and so it is making things more clear.

The expansion of the feature is rolling out to PC users now.
