Netflix gets a major overhaul in its UI design

Netflix has just pushed an update to the Google Play store with a new version of its app and a fresh new design layout. In addition to the fresh UI, Netflix says that its app also benefits from bug fixes. The change log on the Google Play store is pretty sparse but the UI is definitely new for this update.

Are you seeing this update in the Play store yet? What do you think of the new Netflix experience through the new app? Let us know what you think in the comments.

They also recently released a major UI layout to iOS as well. They're at the top of the game. But it's time to start bringing in the latest episodes Netflix and not after the season ends 2 years ago.

Um. I doubt they are reading this site, much less the comments.

decypher44 says:

This! I need S9 of Supernatural and S3 of Once Upon A Time!!!

They have to work out all the contracts they can't just add anything they want.

mwara244 says:

Plus the Companies need to sell DVD's and Digital Content before they allow other companies to Rent them.

TV / Movie companies depend on a lot of fans buying these DVDs to continue on making these shows. It is usually 6 months to a year from what I have been studying before other services can get them.

Unless I can add movies to my DVD queue, I don't care. Why is this not possible yet!?! If it is, please someone tell me.

jdevenberg says:

Because Netflix would love nothing better than for their DVD service to die, so they aren't going to make it any easier to use.

It can die... When they get a decent selection of streaming

Protip: change your region and you can watch tons more content. There are Chrome extensions and Android tweaks you can make to make it possible.

which regions are you talking about :P

Tons of them. UK, Mexico, Argentina, etc. If you go to a site called moreflicks you can look up any movie and see what regions of Netflix the movie is available on. And then download a Chrome extension called Hola! and you can change your region on the fly.

seanjenkins says:

Yeah, but you can't watch it through chromecast and I don't fancy staring at my phone


swimrage says:

The new UI is very nice; clear and easy to navigate. They definitely got it right.

NickLippert says:

I wish they'd have a universal UI, things are different on every single platform it's frustrating.

Jordan Pt says:

I know what you mean. I got my Mother the new Roku Stick for Mother's day and she was annoyed with the redesigned UI.

Posted via Android Central App

No. No. A thousand times no.
I don't want my Android apps looking like iOS apps. It makes them sluggish when they don't use the platform's gui also.

How frustrating can it possibly be? It's a damn menu.

Exactly. It's very easy to use on any platform.

neonworm says:

How is that racist?

wunderbar says:

Pretty sure that was internet sarcasm.

NickLippert says:

It's so racist that it shouldn't need to be explained.

Jay Holm says:

I agree, I like the old icon better.

MarkSeven says:

I agree. They should have kept the white lettering on the red background.

busventinc says:

They need a ui update on fire TV the layout and colors are pretty cool.

Rasmus Brun says:

Besides the new logo and icon there is nothing 'major' in this update...

Taz89 says:

Wouldn't say it's a major Ui change, just looks like they changed color and Netflix logo to a more flatter look. Otherwise it seems pretty much same unless I'm missing something

NorrisNT says:

They did the same thing for the PS3 app

You mean "overhaul", right?

Macfuk says:

Smoother, but otherwise just a different colour on my nexus 7

Posted via Android Central App

Wow. Netflixs app design and playback stability continues to be leaps and bounds better than Hulu. Come on Hulu step your game up


eahinrichsen says:

I think Hulu's UI is fine. They definitely need to get their shit together and work on convincing all content providers to allow mobile device streaming, though. The inconsistency is infuriating.

Posted via Android Central App

Its really not a big change. It does seem smoother though.

Maxey05 says:

I'm liking the new update!

Posted via Android Central App

lol this isn't a major overhaul, it's a slight color change. ridiculous.

twdawson says:

Same old content though with no recent new stuff, that's the update I want
