To start, go to the Google Play Store on your phone, and search for the Netflix app. Hit install and the application will start downloading automatically and appear on your phone’s home screen. Open the app and enter your login details.
The first thing you’ll see on your home page, is the Continue Watching row. This is all the shows you’ve been watching before, so you can hop right back into it. It has a simple play button on the title, once you’ve scrolled onto it. You can continue watching, or drag the bar back and forth to rewind or fast-forward. The nice thing is that if you’ve been watching a show on your XBox or PS3, you can continue watching it on your phone or tablet and get right back into it.
More Options at Your Fingertips
Right after Continue Watching you will see your Top 10. This is a great place to find new things that Netflix thinks you might be interested in. The new shows that appear are based on shows that you’ve previously watched, or rated. Click here to learn how the Netflix algorithm generates recommendations for you.
The other lists that appear show similar shows to the ones you’ve watched before, classified as Because You Watched. If you’re looking for something specific, you can go through the genres under the browse menu (the three lines in the top left corner). Under the genre you choose, you will also see other sub-genres to choose from.
If there’s a specific title you’re looking for that you’re not seeing under the categories, you can use the search button, located at the top of the screen on the right. The related titles will appear as you are typing. Click on the title to view the information page where you can read a synopsis and view other details about the title such as the creator and actors. Select the episode you want to watch, and click the play button.
