Netflix have updated the Android version of the their Netflix app improving the Chomecast support. The release notes don’t go into to many detail just saying “Enhanced second screen experience”, after playing around with the app I noticed the Chromecasting screen has been improved so when your streaming Netflix shows to a Chromecast you can easily access the playback controls and buttons for sharing, rating and viewing series episodes. They are subtle changes but they do improve the Chromecasting experience. The app also has playback optimisations.
You can find the app in the Google Play Store.
