I know the Netflix app essentially was a pet project of John Carmack and it was really great on GearVR at the time. Now it looks like a neglected child and need an upgrade to match the wonderful new hardware of the Quest 2. Please talk to the concerned parties (Netflix?). And John, if you´re seeing this: Blow some magic coding dust its way. Please? Wishlist by order of priority: *Update the streams to HD-material - 480p doesn´t look good. (never really did, but now it looks horrendous) *Update textures in the enviroment (gives us more enviroments?), Passthrough as background? *Ability to watch together with a friend or two. *Ability to download videos to the device. *Give some love to Void Theatre and let us choose backdrops, color schemes or even passthrough + some more control on curvature of the screen. *Maybe integrate it as an Oculus-TV-app?

Totally agree with what last comment said. There is no reason to build an environment or an app just for Netflix 2D resources. Watch high-resolution on default browser should be better. 


Thats something you need to talk to netflix about. Best way to get heard is to contact netflix customer support .

If Netflix allows us to watch 3d movies - I'll never stand up from my bed.🤗

AAaaaand still the same status... please please please update this app.


This never really got any traction.

Well I mean this thread certainly did, but no developing effort ever came from it sadly. I realise that a giant like Netflix might consider VR a niche venture not putting any effort into, but at the same time it feels like it reflects pretty badly on them. All new excited VR-users finding this dread of an app instead of being catered with the visual goodnes it could be. Honestly feels like in this day it wouldn´t take that much of an effort to get it up to speed. I mean, put some dev-interns on it and they´ll fix it in a few weeks. 

Imagine having a spiffy Netflix-window hovering beside you in mixed reality, or over your bed! Turn on co-location and you could share the experience with multiple people.

A side note: When the old user-voice-forum was changed to this new format some years(?) ago I lost contact with my old threads. User "facebook26" used to be my account (but was called Lucid, LucidVR or Lucid360 if I remember correctly). 😛
