The list of Android apps continues to grow every passing minute but not all of the additions are equally important or attractive. Various apps for Android are launched every day but a very few make the noise that Netflix for Android is doing among the users of mobile devices. In this way, the on-demand Internet streaming video service finally arrives to Google’s OS after being launched in iOS and Windows Phone 7.
What can Netflix for Android Phone offer you? The opportunity to watch your favorite movies and TV shows instantly via WiFi or 3G connection, the possibility to search for the contents you’d like to watch from the phone itself and the ability to pause and resume the videos in any given point. Best of all? The Android app is completely free and can be downloaded right now from the Android Marketplace.
Unfortunately, Netflix for Android isn’t available for all of the Android phones out there. Since the popular mobile operating system is used in different devices from different manufacturers, the playback capabilities for each Android phone aren’t the same. That’s why Netflix has to test device by device to check if the app works properly in each of them.
Want to know which Android phones are supported? Well, if you have a HTC Incredible with Android 2.2, a HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2 or 2.3, a HTC Evo 4G with Android 2.2, a HTC G2 with Android 2.2 or a Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3., you are lucky. If your Android phone isn’t on this list, you’ll have to wait until the Netflix team comes up with a solution for other devices.
The addition of the Netflix app to the available Android apps surely is one move that was expected by many people. Combining one of the most popular on-demand Internet streaming video services with the biggest mobile operating system in the world is definitely good news, one that will surely attract more users to Google’s OS.
