Netflix for Windows Phone receives update

Netflix for Windows Phone receives update
If you're a Windows Phone 8.1 user who uses the Netflix app, you might have experienced some issues with it recently. According to a report published today, the Windows Phone version of the streaming video app is giving users headaches when it comes to signing into the app, and again when trying to play videos. Obviously if you can't sign in to Netflix, or stream videos once you do, the whole app is kind of worthless.

Luckily, the update to version of Netflix is available to take care of these problems. Mind you, there is no changelist associated with the update, but if the company expects its faithful Windows Phone 8.1 packin' subscribers to binge watch Frasier, these issues must be dealt with.

If you're planning on spending a lazy Sunday just you, your handset and Netflix, click on the sourcelink and make sure that you've installed the update. At 5.44MB, it's small enough to fit in your pocket.

You know Microsoft's mobile effort is in an absolutely MISERABLE state when updates that barely are given notice by the Apple and Google nation are treated headline news...

Actually that is PhoneArena for you, their windows news section is about as dry and german humor.... Go to other windows sites and you will see quite the different tune. Hell the nextdock for windows continuum would have had 15 articles for apple, detailing the usb port pins...not to mention its thickness...yes phone arena did this in the past. If it was google, it would talk about how it was trying to take over the laptop space and how 'amazing' it was. Face it, their news is a shot in the dark, rarely in house, usually rebranded site news from other places. Not to mention covering very few apps that are moving to the new UWA model, if any at all.

Why would anyone own a Windows phone? Maybe that should be the topic this Sunday.

As a owner of the 950xl and s7 edge I must say close minded individuals really promote the dualopoly android and apple have made. No one said anything when Google wanted to make chrome books which sucks horribly. The windows 10 phones are good just not great and Microsoft has to work on this to make desktop equivalent for a mobile platform to be a contender to the big 2.

How many years and how many chances can you give Microsoft? It's actually gotten worse not better year after year. It's one thing to be third place but WP is not even close to Apple and Android. Anybody defending WP just can't be taken seriously. Just because crap has corn in it does not make it edible.

again all you talk about is being in some particular place...yes numbers matter to a business. How ever it is far better now than it was. When my 2yr+ old phone is getting the latest update from windows 10 and still running strong and smooth...that is what matters, and this is with over 150 apps installed on the device.

Plus pretty sure you own something in your household runs on something made by Microsoft.

Let's make this clear. I'm not a Microsoft hater; I'm a Windows Phone hater. Just like how I love Android phones but hate Android tablets. Just like how I like iPhone's and iPads but hate Mac's and the Apple Watch.

Why are you talking about laptop and chromebook when we discuss about mobile phone?

Because windows 10 is now a core that runs across all devices, that if dev supported, will run on desktop, phone, hololens, xbox...

Some people might want to own something that's different then what 90+ percent of the population own. Microsoft Windows or Blackberry bb10 are good options that way.

Or the good old days of running a symbian Nokia N8..
