Netflix is undoubtedly the most famous video streaming platform for TV series, movies, documentaries, and animated films: it has over one billion installs on Android alone. The platform was founded in August 1998 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph. In this article, we focus on the Netflix for Android app’s key features and we present some additional information.

Key Features

Here are some of the Netflix (Android) app’s main features:

  • No ads: One of the app’s biggest advantages is that it is ad-free. You can stream your favorite shows and movies with no interruptions.

  • Exclusives: Netflix is full of original movies and shows - you can watch them at no additional cost, only on Netflix.
