Netflix Announces Family Member Profiles, Coming To Android "Soon"


Thursday 01st of August 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Netflix profiles have been showing up intermittently on some streaming devices, but now the feature is officially launching. Profiles will start hitting some platforms in the coming days, with more to follow soon. Sadly, our beloved Android is not in this first batch. When you create profiles on Netflix, each one acts like a sub-account with its own recommendations, history, and streaming queue. Although, Netflix didn't even mention the individual queues this time – they seem more interested in personalized recommendations and Facebook integration. You'll even be able to set up profiles with different combinations of people or different moods. First up to get profiles are the website, iPad, iPhone, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Apple TV, and some smart TVs and Blu-ray players. Android is coming sometimes this fall. We will let you know when that happens. Until then, you are authorized to hate Netflix. [Netflix] Tags:appsnetflixstreaming

Netflix adding profiles to service, Android support coming soon


Thursday 01st of August 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Netflix announced today a new feature to help make things easier when several people are sharing the same Netflix account, Netflix Profiles. Profiles act like a sub-account on a master Netflix account. Each profile gets personalized suggestions, their own Instant Queue lists and a segregated Recently Watched history. Owners of competing devices probably wish this function had already been available, but with the introduction of Google’s Chromecast this could be even more useful since so many people are now able to stream their own viewing choices to the device.To add new profiles to an account, users can configure them when first creating an account or existing users can go to their settings. Netflix will allow you to create up to five profiles, which can correspond to individuals or situations like “Family Night.” Profiles can also be linked to Facebook accounts to help users get recommendations from their friends.Netflix is rolling out the new feature in phases over the next several days. Initially, the profiles will only be available through the web site interfac

Netflix rolling out redesigned version 3.0 with several improvements, but no profiles yet


Wednesday 16th of October 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Netflix has started the process of rolling out version 3.0 of their app for Android devices bringing an overhaul of the interface to improve it aesthetically and performance-wise. Unfortunately, Netflix has still not added support for profiles, which can be accessed on every other platform, in this latest update. Lacking that, the update still seems to be well done and you will probably want to grab it as soon as it is available.The general layout of the app remains similar to the current version, but everything is much crisper, is closer to following the Holo design framework, and seems to have lost that “html wrapper” feel and leans more toward being a native client. The action bar at the top now includes an overflow menu button on the right hand side and a “hamburger” button on the left that actually pulls out the navigation drawer.One of the nice things about Netflix has been support for Chromecast for users who have one of the devices and Netflix has worked to improve that interaction as well.

Netflix for Android finally gets support for profiles


Sunday 15th of December 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
After lagging behind other platforms that have had support for profiles since the feature was introduced by Netflix earlier this year, the Netflix for Android app is finally getting an update that includes this feature. The updated version was posted to Google Play yesterday and should start showing up on user’s devices to be updated. The new version also includes an enhanced search function with support for people and related titles along with some bug fixes.The profile feature makes things easier for users where several people may be sharing one Netflix account. Instead of seeing watch histories and what to watch lists from everyone, using a profile means the app will just display those items connected to that profile. When first started after the update, Netflix will ask the user which profile to use. An option to change the profile is included in the left slide-out menu.If you haven’t been prompted for the update yet or want to give Netflix a try on your Android device, use one of the links below to access the Google Play store.Google Play Download Link» See mor

PSA: Restricted User Accounts Can Be Used To Prevent Profile Switching In Updated Netflix App


Monday 23rd of December 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
We waited a little longer to get Netflix profiles in the Android app, but it looks like there is a nice little bonus to compensate us for that delay. The updated Netflix app plugs into the profile system on Android tablets running 4.2 or later. This gives you the option to prevent Netflix profile switching on restricted user accounts. When you're setting up a restricted account (for example, a kid's account), you have the ability to choose which apps are accessible. The Netflix app has a setting in the Android account setup that lets you disable profile switching. If that box is ticked, then the first profile the app accesses will be the only one it can access. In the spot where you'd usually see the account switcher is a little lock. Note, this doesn't affect Netflix on your main device profile or any additional unrestricted users. You'll also have to keep the Netflix login a secret – logging out and back in will offer the profile prompt again. Still, it's a really cool feature that most third-party developers haven't bothered with. This appears to be an Android-exclusive fea
