Netflix Shows-Off Its App’s New Look


Netflix introduced a new look to its iOS app recently, and just pushed those same changes through for the Android version. No software update is needed to check out the improvements, which all occur back on the server end of things, so you should be able to see the new look straight away. Netflix has released a short video to highlight the refreshed app, getting you started with its latest UI.

The new layout is very touch-friendly, letting you tap on a show or movie to bring up a quick info view with cast listings, a synopsis, and more; if you’re in a hurry, you can double-tap on a title to just start playing it, straight away.

There’s a bar up top with all your recently-viewed videos, letting you resume from where you left off with a tap. Browsing’s been improved to quickly let you narrow things down by genre or age-appropriateness, or you can jump to right what you’re looking for with the integrated search.

Functionally, the app should still work the same, with these changes more about Netflix’s look-and-feel than anything else. If you’ve tried out the new Netflix, let us know what you think of the new look.
