The previous version of the Netflix application was featured with a hamburger navigation menu which slid out from the left-hand side. This navigation menu bar consisted of a list of notifications, user settings, content categories, My List, and downloads. However, the arrangement of these components was not completely organized. It was sometimes a bit confusing to the Netflix users.
Netflix Updated version
The updated version of the Netflix now consists of an enhanced User Interface (UI) having a new navigation menu bar. This new navigation menu bar replaces the previous unorganized navigation menu bar. The single menu bar links to multiple options and is much easier to use. It combines the different categories from the previous navigation menu with the search page.
The downloaded files will now stay in very extrusive manner. This is beneficial for the users who regularly prefer using Netflix offline. The bottom region of the screen contains the enhanced and organized navigation bar menu. This gives an access to all the various features of the Netflix application, such as
- Coming Soon
- and More Pages.
With the ‘More page’ option in the case of the new User Interface, the user can:
- Switch between different accounts
- Manage profile
- Sign out
- Administer their account
- Change the app settings
In the new version, the content categories are listed underneath the Search bar of the Search page. This seems to be an intriguing modification.
The improvised User Interface is presently available to the Beta channel subscribers. The users may update to new Netflix version 6.0.0 through Google Play Store if they are Beta channel subscribers. If not, then download the new version from APK Mirror. This will allow the Netflix users to have access to the new User Interface.
Few users have seen a couple of other new features. This includes new floating action button placed on the right-hand side for Chromecast, instead of top as in case of the other applications. In addition to this, new drop-down allows the users to select between movies, TV shows, and Originals. However, these features are server-side, and so may or not be available to the users.
Netflix may still be working on further variations on the Beta users to make available an even more modified version.
For more updates, make sure to come back.
