Netflix for Android updated with new player UI and 4.2 support
Netflix for Android got an update today, and it's a pretty nice one. The update gives an overhaul to the player UI so it's much easier to control the volume and video playback. In addition to that, the update also adds support for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which doesn't matter to most of the ecosystem, but is really nice for those with Nexus devices.

The UI changes are pretty noticeable, and welcomed. The volume button has been made larger, and easier to slide. And, the video scrubber is easier to slide through and see where you are in the video. Netflix says that there are "many new features" in the new player, but all of the rest must be under-the-hood changes, because we don't see them. 

As always, there are various bug fixes and performance updates that aren't detailed in the changelog. 

If you want to grab the Netflix update, just head over to the Google Play Store

they've worked on the player long enough. we need a new UI for the "Browse Selection" aspects of the UI, they're awful and make me not want to even get as far as the player.

The UI update came with the previous version. Not this..I've been using the new UI since more than a week. This one just brings bug fixes.
