netflixAre you an Android device owner who shares a Netflix account with your significant other/kids/family/dog? If yes, then there’s good news: Netflix for Android finally supports multiple profiles.

Netflix introduced user profiles in August to allow each person in a household using the same account to have their own profile. That means each person enjoys personalized recommendations based on their own viewing habits, rather than a noisy culmination of what everyone in the family watches.

That’s not quite all. The updated Netflix for Android app now serves search results based on the names of actors/other people, and related content.
