Over the weekend, Netflix pushed a new update accompanied by a rather mysterious changelog that states the following: “version 5.0 only works with devices that are certified by Google and meet all Android requirements.”
Soon after the new version of Netflix was released, many Android users reported the application shows as incompatible with their phones on the Google Play store. Although many thought this would be a minor bug, Netflix offered a statement on the matter the solves the mystery.
As mentioned, while access to the Netflix app on the Google Play store has been blocked to all rooted and unlocked Android devices, the application is still working if you had it installed before version 5.0.4 was released.
