Netflix Receives Updated UI on Google Play, White Icon Included

Folks are waking up to a Netflix update this morning, one which includes a fancy new white icon and UI enhancements. The changelog posted on Google Play is rather bare, stating “UI enhancements and bug fixes,” but it would seem this update is just a tad more important than that. 

Performance definitely appears to be more smooth throughout the application, and video playback still seems rather good over 4G LTE. Netflix is also continuing its trend of making the app darker on Android, with the UI showing much more shadowy tones than it previously did.

If you want to check out the update for yourself, and that awesome new icon, download it on Google Play by following the link below.

    Funny, update the ui to the last year version of android UX. Come on netflix.

  • callumshell1

    it’s ugly

  • Guy Pierce

    Because of the bug and UI enhancements Netflix is raising the streaming fee for anyone who upgrades. The new price: Whatever we say and just because.

  • Silver Veloz

    Yes, I got the update last night on my Moto X and Nexus 7 (2013). I didn’t really notice anything different except for the logo and a few new movies. Oh, and I loved World War Z.

    Icons and UI still the same over Chromecast. Strange the rollout isn’t universal.

    • Nic

      The website got it first, then iOS. Android was #2 on the list. Windows 8 and other platforms are waiting for the change. At least this is what i’ve encountered across the various systems i use.

      • Chris

        PS3 also has an updated UI with the Red Netflix logo.

  • Bryan Mills

    World War Z, great movie.

      Must be a pretty crappy movie if it made it to Netflix so soon.

      • jackwagoner

        Not necessarily. Most movies are hitting cable networks like HBO, Starz, Cinemax, etc within 6-8 months of their theatrical release now. Netflix is getting them a few months later. I’d hardly claim that just because it hit streaming Netflix a year after its theatrical release has anything to do with its quality (and I liked the film).

        • PoisonApple31

          Must just be my luck then.

      • Bryan Mills

        It was a Box Office hit too.
        $540,007,876 on a $190 mil budget.

      • It was..

    • Xavier_NYC

      Yeah I thought it was gonna suck but it was a pretty good movie..

      • hkklife

        It started off with a bang but ended with a whimper. I still preferred the book by a longshot. Still, it’s good to see Netflix getting “newer” movies. I really wish they’d introduce two tiers of service. One with whatever it has now and another one for ~$5 more per month with a deeper library of catalog titles and a few more new releases.

        • Xavier_NYC

          Yeah that would def be nice.. I hate that some movies are only available on DVD.. I wish they just had everything up for Stream, I would def pay extra for that

      • Bryan Mills

        I love Brad Pitt, so I knew I was gonna like it regardless lol

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Solid summer time random action flick. . . no depth necessary

      • Bryan Mills

        I like how it’s not just another zombie movie too. Looking forward to the sequels

        • evltwn

          Spoiler alert!

    • m1ghtysauc3

      The movie was good but the book was much better. Not even close.

      • TeeJay1100

        Books are always better no doubt. But that was still a good movie

    • I personally hated that movie. So repetitive, glad I downloaded it,

    • mamiecharbonneau325

      . I see what you mean… Barry `s posting is unbelievable… I just got a
      gorgeous BMW 5-series after making $7502 thiss month and a little over ten/k
      lass-month . it’s by-far the most-financially rewarding Ive had . I actually
      started 6 months ago and almost straight away was bringing home at least $83
      per hour . this page

      That movie was a sh*tstain.

  • Mike Aurin

    The red with white text was so iconic, dating back to the days where I’d wait eagerly for my bright red envelope to come in the mail. Now if I got a white envelope in the mail I’d probably throw it in the junk pile.

  • NexusMan

    Hate the new white icon.

    • Bryan Mills

      White power!

      • That reminded me of the Dave Chappele show when he was a top KKK Grand Master (or whatever they call themselves) leader and didn’t know he was black… lmfao..
