CAMBODIA: The latest Netflix update for Android devices brings a number of new features, the most exciting of which is Android Wear integration. Netflix has released an update to its Android app, adding Android Wear controls to the streaming service.
Netflix has taken its saccharine time bringing its Android app accurate, but at least it’s bearing extra nice gifts for you and your inner circle. You can now privately endorse shows to Facebook friends without clogging their news victuals — a feature that’s already been available on the web and iOS for several months.
Netflix did throw in a couple of exclusive Android extras, though: you’ll be able to utilize your smartphone to thank a friend for a recommendation, optically discern images and show info, and even pause or play movies. But, the best part for nerdy film-doters: you can now utilize an Android Wear smartwatch to take the same actions, including remotely controlling shows (as shown above). Being the last to get an update sucks, but I’ll blissfully trade that for the double-takes when I launch House of Cards from my time exhibitor, Dick Tracy-style.
