Content is fantastic.. The player works absolutely fine. Would love to have a couple of updates - forward or reverse by 10 sec instead of 30. Like Youtube or Amazon Prime you know. 30 seconds is too long. And pls could you get the controls on the screen instead of the small bar below which is not very modern. Make binge watching even more fantastic and I will update my review. Full Review

It's a great app when it actually let's you watch something. Most of the time it tells me error, connection lost, cannot stream this title for you at the moment over and over. I'm to the point where I'm ready to get rid of my subcrision because of what has been happening. It hasn't only been happening to me too. My friends are experiencing it, my parents, their friends and family, and also me. It's getting only netflix it really is. Get your stuff together. Please all I want to watch are the shoes I want to but netflix just isn't working Full Review

Two thumbs up to Netflix. One of my biggest grievances was to start a film or series only to find that it was in a language other than English. I am now able to enjoy well acted and produced " foreign " films and not get lost in subtitles after finding that I can choose English in the audio selection of many titles. Thanks. Full Review
Daniel McDonald Published date: February 22, 2018
Personally I like the previous version more because I was able to fast forward or rewind, even though it was only by 10 seconds. I liked having that kind of control. I also don't like that when I rotate my phone the screen doesn't rotate anymore on the main screen for selecting movies/shows. If you could change those two features back that would be great. Also there seems to be a lot of shows and movies in lots of other languages but for some reason English isn't one of them. I enjoy watching foreign shows/movies and though I don't mind reading subtitles I still prefer to watch in English. If something could be done about that it would be greatly appreciated. Full Review
Livins Varghese Published date: February 22, 2018
The new update of this app is really sucks. Would you please do something about it. The forward and rewind buttons not there anymore and also next and previous buttons. The porn hub website has even better UI/UX than netflix. Really disappointed on the new update. It's quite easy to fix since you guys have the best engineering team. Full Review

I have been a subscriber from day one it came to the Netherlands and content improved very much. A lot of new European content. However, downloading does not work properly. It downloads and registers the amount of data consumed in storage but it keeps streaming causing me to consume all of my data plan. Full Review
pippa nico Published date: February 19, 2018
Why the heck has the pause button moved from the centre of the screen back to the bottom left (it's so fiddly!) And also the 'skip intro' has gone along with the 10 second rewind and foeward..whats going on Netflix? Fix it back to how it was please. Or explain! This is a step back and really annoying. Full Review
Cassie Marcus Published date: February 23, 2018
Love Netflix. But honestly having issues with the app draining over 30% of my battery while not in use along with data turned off. What's happening? How is it running if its not streaming or doesn't have available wifi or data on? I have to reinstall app whenever I want to watch then turn around and uninstall afterwards. Just really annoying. Full Review
Natalie Pace Published date: February 23, 2018
New app update is AWFUL! My menu button for browsing is gone so now I can't look for anything and am limited to the few categories on the main page which are not specific enough and don't show everything and I have to scroll endlessly instead of looking under subcategories. Full Review
Ross Mackay Published date: February 20, 2018
It's buggy. Hangs after 40 minutes or so, just shows the buffering spinning circle. This spoils every show I watch as I have to reboot my nexus tablet to finish watching a show. Nothing else hangs, my Internet connection isn't the problem. Its been a problem since I loaded the app in January and the latest version is installed. Please fix this, urgently. Full Review
Cindy Wilcox Published date: February 22, 2018
Video keeps freezing as of 2/12/18. The audio continues but the video just stops. I tried different internet sources all with the same outcome.I use this app all the time and am so sad I can't get it to work for me. I have a htc u11 Edit 2/22/18: updated to newest version. Continue to have the same problem!! Full Review
Griffin Bruning Published date: February 22, 2018
The app causes my phone to freeze and i have to restart my phone often, only audio and black screen will play a lot and need to close the app a few times before it works again. Some tv series had a glitch where it wasnt showing latest episodes and i had to go to the last episode displayed and skip through until I got to the newest one. Sometimes I get an error when i try to play a show then I leave it a day or so and it will work... I've checked i dont believe it an issue on my end. I have the latest phone running latest software so i hate to see this run on older phones. Full Review
Cheryl Miller Published date: February 19, 2018
Love this app. Just wish the newest update didn't change it back to the way it used to be. I liked the 10 seconds rewind more than the 30 seconds, and it had 10 second fast forward, and everything was in the middle of the screen. I don't like that the newer features were taken away and it went back to the old way. Full Review
Bradley McLean Published date: February 22, 2018
Not stable. Often crashes with a "device failure" error message. If the app plays more than one video in a row, you got lucky. Actually, if the app plays any video at all without having to be closed and reopened 6 times first, you got lucky. Full Review
Almos Rajnai Published date: February 24, 2018
It is hard to believe that a company like Netflix is unable to create a better UX. This app was always rather hard to use with the side-scrolling extremely long list of movies and with so-so working playback timeline. Now, the limited bottom side navigation replaced the proper side navigation. There is no legit reason why, it takes up useful space and limits the number of options. Come on, Netflix, you can do better. A lot better actually. Full Review
David Allee Published date: February 23, 2018
A recent irritation: Every single time I open the app it asks if I want notifications. No, I do not. I go to Netflix in my free time to watch what I like. I'm not interested in many of the videos they want to promote. Also, I don't need more distractions when I'm going about my day. Stop asking every single time when I keep telling you no. Full Review
Published date: February 23, 2018
Attention NetFlix! I hope you'll be able to read my very humble comment regarding to your recent updates. First of all, removing the feature where we can fast-forward or vice-versa while watching certain clips is absolutely a "BIG NO-NO!" for many of us. Also, I thought at first it's just me who've experienced frame freeze while the audio is still going on. I honestly thought it's my internet speed then I figured out it's because of the new updates you made. I've read some comments and we both have the same dilemma. If I were you, I'll listen to your subscribers especially when they're giving honest and constructive criticism like me. Lastly, the features are getting complicated to maneuver. I mean, it looks simple but it's no longer friendly-user since we can't control the app the way we want it to command. That's all. More Power! Full Review
Annie Sheffield Published date: February 19, 2018
Please bring back the 10 second controls. They were the best thing you had added in a while (other than original show, you are killing it with those) and I seriously miss them when it comes to watching my favorite shows (I do not have to watch the opening and closing sequences when I am binge watching thanks). Other than that keep up the excellent work!! Full Review
Olga S Published date: February 23, 2018
Your servers go down way too often. I try and download offline episodes for my commute home and I can't because "it can't connect, please retry". Also the bottom tabbar of the new UI sucks, looks way to iphone-y. That's an iOS design guideline, not sure what it's doing in an Android version of an app. Full Review
Juber Ahmed Published date: February 24, 2018
The past couple of updates have been draining the battery on my Galaxy Note 12.2 really fast. It also decides to run in the background even when I haven't even opened it up and drain my battery extremely quickly! Terrible updates! Full Review
Juan Rubio Published date: February 20, 2018
It seems the app has received a redesign, but I for some reason haven't been able to rate anything for months. Is there any other users who are experiencing this problem? I use Netflix primarily on my mobile device, and not being able to rate anything renders recommendations useless. Full Review
Tomer Michael Published date: February 24, 2018
Edit: Not only the problem wasn't fixed until I reinstalled the app, it just happened again! And still no answer from you guys. Shame. After the update the app made my phone completely crush for 4 hours!!! It happened three times - first couple of times it was for 10 minutes and I wasn't sure it was caused by the app but the third it it was definitely your app and I had to wait for my battery to get to 0 so that I could restart the phone because the phone just didn't respond to ANYTHING. Terrible service! I won't continue with you after my trial is done even though I recommended you to so many of my friend. And the libarary for Israelis is EXTREMELY limited. Full Review
Fernando Moreno Published date: February 23, 2018
Whenever I pause, it starts playing automaticaly after about a minute. It happens every time without fail. Its getting really annoying. Very buggy for Galaxy S8+, video gets stuck, app works fine on other Samsung devices. Full Review
Demi Lester Published date: February 21, 2018
I guess since it updated I can no longer access the app. It always says it's an error with the server which no is not true because I can watch it on my computer. Also it pulls other peoples profile watchings onto my profile that is the active one. Fix this please Full Review
Flora Published date: February 20, 2018
First I thought Netflix has not enough series and movies but this changed later I often find new good thing one it! I like STRANGER THINGS or DAREDEVIL there are really cool! But my all time favorite will be GOOD MORNING CALL !!! I love the story so much and the actors they are so gorgeous! It's my first time that I watched a Japanese show but I doesn't regret it at all!! It was so nice and sweet that I watched the show two times !! 3 season please !! #UeharaYoshikawaforever #goodmorningcallnetflix Full Review
Elyse Swoverland Published date: February 19, 2018
The app is great overall and works like it should. The only downside is that it pops up a dialog asking me to turn on push notifications every time I open it up. It gets old when you open it up frequently. At this point I've turned them on and blocked them at the OS level just to get the app to stop asking. Full Review
James Khoury Published date: February 20, 2018
Love the app. It's always been easy to use and hardly had any issues. Found one typo "My rofile" instead of "My Profile" Needs a way to submit bugs from the app or website. How else would you get feedback? Full Review
Andre. S. Published date: February 19, 2018
19 Feb update is still not working. App is unable to launch when there's no internet or when netflix is inaccessible in certain countries, thus offline watching doesn't work either. I haven't been able to watch since these 3 updates. Bad value for my money. Bring back offline access Full Review
Published date: February 23, 2018
Every time I open the app it would like to know if I'd like to receive notifications. The answer is still no and leads me to wonder why I would want to receive notifications after answering in the negative time and again. Full Review
Sean Roberts Published date: February 20, 2018
Apps great except for trying to watch things offline. It varies the amount allowed to download from 700mb to 1.5gb and a failed attempt at downloading counts against your yearly download limit for that item. So say it fails to download 3 times and by the time you have space to download you now can't since you've hit your limit so you have to find time to watch it while connected and hopefully you can before things start to expire.... Y'all should be lowering your prices for this decreasing service not charging more for less and crappier content. Full Review
Emily Libby Published date: February 24, 2018
App is decent, but sometimes struggles with Chromecast connection. However the biggest frustration is the constant ask if I want push notifications. Everytime you open the app it asks and there doesn't seem to be a clear way to make that stop. Netflix, stop trying to make push notifications happen. It's not going to happen! Full Review
Michelle Campbell Published date: February 20, 2018
I'd like to get through an episode of "REIGN" without the buffering in the middle of watching on my phone ( over WIFI ), and not have to restart the app completely or switch over to my laptop to resume viewing. Sometimes--a lot actually--I can't even resume playback on my phone. Frustrating. Full Review
Philip Reid Published date: February 21, 2018
With latest update no video displayed no app buttons... only hear sound on Samsung s8! You need to do better testing before releasing software! Tried reinstalling that didnât work either :( Full Review
Sandra Ann Published date: February 20, 2018
I am having trouble with the video playing, it keeps buffering. Then says something wrong with the video player. The buffering started after this last update. I pay for this, and need it fixed so I can enjoy the shows. Thanks. Full Review
Shawn Erdahl Published date: February 24, 2018
Not sure why I keep paying for a service when Netflix removed all my tv shows an movies I like to watch. Mainly why I got Netflix. I guess I'm just hoping for new content to come out each month. Can't wait for Disney stream service. Full Review
Antonis Zachariades Published date: February 20, 2018
Latest UI update is even worse than before. Had anyone even checked with an S8 in full screen? Buttons don't belong at the bottom of the screen. All these UI changes are been made with no benefit. The overall experience of application is getting much worse than what it used to be a couple weeks ago. Can't understand why bother updating to later versions if UI keeps changing like this. At least give the option to change UI back to "legacy" versions. Full Review
Mikael Tan Published date: February 21, 2018
New update is horrible. Without the 10s forward/rewind feature it's super annoying to skip scenes/intros. And without the "next episode" button, i have to scroll through the long list of episodes to watch the new one. Don't know why it was removed shortly after it was implemented... Full Review
Castin Whitmore. Published date: February 23, 2018
It doesn't have everything but its amazing! Its my go to for any of my favorite movies and tv shows. I just wish it had all my favorites at the same time! Full Review
Jordan Leston Published date: February 20, 2018
The play button being removed from the middle of the screen and the rewind 30sec instead of 10sec or not even giving you the option is ridiculous. Also the app dosnt save my progress when watching a show so i have to start from the beginning each time. This stuff is ruining the app. Please fix it or at least give us the option to choose for ourselves. Full Review
Sienna Skies Published date: February 23, 2018
Getting tired of paying for a service that flat out refuses to load on my laptop. "Connection has timed out" Everytime yet I can stream any other service just fine. I'll be switching to Hulu Full Review
