Editors' Review

Netflix for Android delivers the company's broad collection of movies and TV shows to your phone.


Sweeping library of content: Netflix increasingly looks to original content, such as "House of Cards," to attract and keep subscribers. Along with original shows, Netflix's expansive catalog includes movies, TV series, and documentaries.

Mobile access to the Netflix catalog: With the Netflix app, you can stream on demand from the Netflix library to your phone. The app looks and behaves in much the same way as the company's smart TV app. And Netflix syncs your viewing progress across platforms, so if you pause a show on your TV, the mobile app will display the title and let you pick up where you left off.

Useful recommendations: Netflix triangulates between your streaming history, any ratings you've assigned, and Netflix members with similar tastes to suggest shows and movies you may be interested in.

Affordably priced: Pick from three subscription tiers. For $7.99 a month, you can watch unlimited movies and shows in standard definition on one screen at a time. $9.99 a month gives you unlimited high-definition movies and shows on two screens. For $11.99, you can view Ultra HD content across four screens at once.

Watch offline: With the Android app, you can download shows and movies to watch later. Not everything in Netflix's library is available, but if you see a download icon next to a title, you can save it to your phone to view later.

Widely available: If you have an Internet-connected device, you can probably watch Netflix. The service is available across smart TVs, media players, game consoles, Blu-ray players, mobile devices, and Macs and PCs.

Profiles: You can create as many as five profiles for family members, including a Kids profile that filters age-appropriate content for ages 12 and younger.

Content moves in and out with little warning: Netflix's content library is always evolving, and some websites put a fair amount of effort into monitoring what's in and out each month. While the content rotation ensures you always have something new to watch, it also means something you are hoping to watch in the future may be gone by the time you are ready.

Bottom Line

With Netflix's Android app, you can browse the expansive collection of on-demand movies and shows and watch on-demand video on your phone. Just move quickly in case your choices gets shuffled out of rotation.

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
