Netflix for Android Updated, Brings a Fix for Android 4.3 Bug


If one of your devices is currently running Android 4.3, and you love Netflix, then you might have noticed that the newest version of Android was having troubles at times with the streaming service app. Whatever the issue was, it has been resolved in the newest update that is now available through Google Play.

What’s New:

  • Fixes and optimization for devices running Android 4.3.
  • On the new Nexus 7 HD, this version requires all Android 4.3 system updates to be installed.

We love it when bugs get squashed. Now all we need is for the MLB At Bat people to get their act together and resolve their Android 4.3 issues.

    Now if only they would fix the horrible scrolling issues that exist on the Droid DNA, at least.

  • SchwannyT

    Where is the multi user setup? I set it all up on my PS3 and figured the android app would support it after the next update… or maybe the next?

  • I hope this will fix the ChromeCast situation for certain devices

  • Damn that moto X picture looks sexy to the right.

      If I bought one, it’d have to have an American flag back plate. Made in America, for Americans, by Americans. Did I mention America?

    Thanks netflix. Now… Where’s my update to HBOGo and MAXGo since they can’t play ANYTHING at all (even with a sideload). *stares @ HBO* At this point I’d settle for buggy playback. Throw Chromecast in while you’re at it and I’ll be happy with you again 🙂

    How’s it look on the Nexus 10?

  • LionStone

    Hmm, haven’t noticed any issues with Netflix or MLB At Bat on the new N7 HD that came yesterday! Yeehaw! Listened and followed the game last night and videos look great!

    • AnotherAndroidKid

      Are you using mlb.tv subscription to watch live games? or just the video cuts on the app?

      • LionStone

        Ah, gotcha…just the clips and recap video, not streaming live games.

    Hopefully this will fix the ChromeCast situation for certain devices (Razr, Maxx,Bionic) running JellyBean 4.1.2. I will test it tonight. Here’s the bug: http://forums.androidcentral.com/google-chromecast/301496-chromecast-bug-certain-phones-razr-bionic-etc.html

      No kidding… the RAZR issue is annoying, but I’m guessing this won’t do anything about it.

    “On the new Nexus 7 HD, this version requires all Android 4.3 system updates to be installed.”

    Is it possible to have anything else on it?

    • joejoe5709

      Isn’t there some sort of update right out of the box? Maybe that’s what they’re talking about.

    • Flyinion

      Yes it is. When they launched early on Friday some Best Buys had a bad batch that would install the first update, but some file had some wrong info in it and the second update would fail. I had one of them, and there was a lot of talk on XDA about the problem that evening. You could still use the tablet but you were stuck unable to update it.

      Don’t know if Google ever fixed it or what. Someone at XDA had already put together a flashable update to the final patch that ignored checking that one file but I just returned the tablet to a different store and exchanged it since it was brand new.

      • Thanks for that info. I couldn’t figure out why Netflix wouldn’t work.
        My new Nexus 7 updated OS at first boot-up, but did not notify me that it was a two-update process. I found it in Settings.

    MLB At Bat on tablets is useless anyway… Only the phone app is good

    • AnotherAndroidKid

      Actually tablet is the only way i can use it now remotely. 4.3 on my GNex means no video for me.

  • EC8CH

    Who’s currently enjoying 3 free months with their chromecast?

    • aye_winchell

      woot!, i never noticed this bug, because since upgrading to 4.3 the only thing i use the netflix app for is to cast content to my tv 🙂

      Just redeemed it last night! 11 bucks for Chromecast is suhweet!

    • Riz Virani

      I gave mine away seeing as it’s already being paid for haha

      just as Daniel responded I’m alarmed that a mom can earn $4770 in a few weeks on the internet. did you see this page w­w­w.K­E­P­2.c­o­m

    • KleenDroid

      I’ve been enjoying my Chromecast since I got it. I just started my Netflix trial the other day and I love how it works.

      I think it will get even better as time goes on. But for $35 it cant be beat.

      I do unplug the power when not in use because I noticed it tends to get really hot when it sits unused.

      • EC8CH

        If you’re TV has a usb port it should kill the power if you plug into that.

        • LionStone

          Mines plugged into the usb and it never shuts off, even with the TV off. Until KleenDroid mentioned it, I hadn’t checked mine for heat. Since I plugged it in last Sat. I haven’t detached it and it was warm but not hot, the info book inside the box says it’s normal. However, now I unplugged the key from the TV and the cord and put it back in the box.

    Maybe they should fix the videos available before they fix their app!
