Netflix for Android gets user profiles, better search


Netflix is making its Android users’ lives a little easier with the latest update (3.1.0 ) to its Android application. The big addition is support for individual profiles, which means users that share the same Netflix account and Android devices can flip their profiles to the respective user at the time. Basically this means not seeing My Little Pony recommended for you when your kid had it last. It also ushers in the Restricted Profile feature that allows parents who share their Android devices with their kids to rope off all the adult stuff they don’t want young Sparky getting into.

The update also fixes some bugs and delivers an improved search function with support for actors and related titles. The Netflix app remains free in the Google Play Store free of charge. It takes up just 14MB of storage and requires Android 2.2 or later.

Meanwhile, it appears Netflix isn’t digging the complete grave for physical media yet. The company has been sending out a promotional email to subscribers offering a free upgrade from the single-disc plan to the two-disc plan. The “Double Your Pleasure” deal says customers can “Upgrade to our 2-Out Unlimited Plan and enjoy the introductory price of $7.99 for the first month,” and that “After the promotional period you will be charged the regular price of $11.99 a month for the 2-Out Unlimited Plan.”
