Netflix app to be outfitted with data saver feature

The company has confirmed that the Android version of the application will save a user’s bandwidth.

Users of the Netflix app on Android devices who live in developing nations or who are starting to run short on what’s left of their data plan for the month will be pleased with a new feature that is headed their way and that is meant to make sure the streaming service doesn’t present as much of a drain on their data.

Due to the bandwidth required to stream the Netflix content, many people see it as a WiFi only experience.

In response to this and to make sure customers will be able to use the Netflix app regardless of where they are and how much data is left on their plans, data saver mode is being packed into the application. This will help to place a check on the amount of data that is consumed and can allow the user to choose the quality of the video they’d like to see. When this feature becomes available, it will be possible to reduce the amount of data used by dropping the quality down to a level that is quite blurry but still viewable.

The Netflix app will also reduce the amount of data it uses while it runs in the background.

Netflix AppNetflix announced the addition of the data saver mode, which has already been introduced to some of the Android apps, on its official blog. It confirmed that it is working on testing that feature as well as several others and that they will be rolling out in a more widespread way very soon.

This is one of several efforts the company is making in order to cater to a growing number of consumers who are watching video over mobile networks. The company is exploring various ways to make sure consumers can keep control over the experience they receive through Netflix, regardless of the device they’re using.

The goal is to make it possible for users of the Netflix app to maintain more control over their data usage while they do stream over mobile networks, so that they can stream a larger amount of video even when they have a smaller data plan, or they can choose to boost their video quality if they are subscribing to a more substantial data plan. The company has set a goal of May 2016 for the release of these new features.

Netflix launches hilarious fictitious wearable technology

The streaming video service released a commercial that spoofs the smartwatches that are at the height of tech right now.

Netflix has recently released a commercial in which it has taken advantage of the hype surrounding wearable technology in order to be able to draw more attention to its video streaming services.

The commercial pretends to be introducing a new smartwatch device called the “Netflix Watch”.

The idea behind this pretend device is that owners of this wearable technology will be able to keep watching the streaming video service no matter where they are. Despite the fact that April Fool’s Day has come and gone, this video has still been well received and many are getting quite a laugh out of one of the funniest little pranks that the company has ever released.

The phony wearable technology from Netflix is essentially a wrist band with a smartphone attached to it.

The Netflix Watch is worn just like a regular wrist strap, only it has a full sized smartphone attached to it, supposedly to allow the wearer to be able to continue to view the service regardless of whether or not they are in a location that would allow them to hold the device in their hands. This way, says the commercial, people can watch the shows and movies they like while driving, jogging, and taking part in all sorts of other activities that are clearly inappropriate for video viewing.

The soothing voice of the narrator explains that “It’s the vast world of Netflix right on your wrist.”

When it comes to the timing of the commercial, Netflix has clearly made quite the strategic choice. The Apple Watch has only just recently come available for pre-order, and it will soon be possible for those who have purchased or reserved their own smartwatches to pick them up in stores, on April 24.

With such a large amount of attention focused on the world of wearable technology, the company has slyly ensured that it would be able to keep at least part of the tech news spotlight on itself, regardless of the fact that it doesn’t actually have a smartwatch to offer.
