Those using the Netflix app on an Android device, you may want to fire up the Google Play store and check for the recently released update. The Netflix app has been updated and is now sitting at version 2.1.0. The app maintains support for devices running Android 2.2 or later and while free to download, will require a subscription in order to use.

Those bits aside though, despite having a requirement for 2.2 Froyo on the low-end, the v2.1.0 update has brought proper support for Android 4.2. Other changes that came along with this most recent update include what Netflix notes as a brand new player with many added features. Some of those new features include a larger volume button and easier scrubbing with new video stills.

Otherwise, the changelog also notes that the Netflix app has gotten some playback related bug fixes and some improvements in terms of stability. Bottom line here, while the update sounds like it will be decent for all users, those rocking a Nexus device with Android 4.2 will likely want to grab this when they can.
