Netflix’s super simple speed test tool is now available on Android and iOS

Netflix’s sleek speed testing tool, Fast.com, is now available as a mobile app.

You can use the app to measure how fast your internet connection is at any given moment. Although it’s not very different than using just the website on your mobile browser, the one-tap shortcut might be handy for someone who’s constantly curious about their internet speed.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

Plus, the more often you use the app, the more information Netflix gets about the connections service providers offer to customers around the country. Alongside the app’s launch, Netflix also details in a blog post how it built fast.com. It’s a pretty long and technical post though, so read it slowly.

You can download the Fast app for free for both Android and iOS.
