Netflix overhauls its Windows Phone app with new design, more features

Netflix is finally updating its Windows Phone app after nearly a year, bringing a design that will look familiar to subscribers who use the company's apps on other platforms.

The update brings the video-streaming service's app up to par with its versions on other mobile platforms, featuring the company's revised logo and a darker theme. Similar to other Netflix apps, users are prompted with a profile selection view when first launching the app, and a "post-play" screen now pops up with recommendations or more episodes after a movie or TV show is complete.

Cortana integration is now also included in the app, allowing users to search for movies by issuing voice or text commands, such as "Netflix, find 'Orange is the New Black.'" Additionally, content can now be pinned to a user's home screen and Netflix says the app now provides "better video quality."

The app is available for free in the Windows Phone Store.
