Netflix App for Android platform has been officially launched few days back but the app was supporting only a select five Android powered handsets only but promised to be bring the support for more handsets in the near future. As promised, Netflix App has been updated now and has officially brought the support for three more Android devices – Verizon branded newly released LG Revolution, recently launched Casio G’zOne Commando, and the original Motorola Droid. That makes the total number of Netflix supported devices to eight, including the HTC Incredible, Samsung Nexus S, HTC EVO 4G, HTC G2, and, HTC Nexus One.
The updated Netflix app brings a few bug fixes. The app will not crash on startup when phone’s embedded storage space is almost full and the update also removed a check that prevented attempt to playback on unsupported devices. Users can also observe that the streaming video’s volume is now not as low as it used to be.
It seems that the users of HTC Thunderbolt, Motorola Droid x, Droid X2, Samsung Droid Charge, Motorola Atrix 4G, T-Mobile G2X and more handsets still have to wait to get the support of Netflix app.
If you have a supported Android device that is listed among the aforementioned handsets, you can download the Netflix app from Android Market (hit the link) for free.
