Netflix for Android has been updated and is now compatible with any smartphone or tablet that runs Android 2.2 Froyo or 2.3 Gingerbread. Previously, Netflix was only available for devices that were listed as officially compatible by the content provider.
The changelog for the version 1.4 update of the app does not list any other new features or bug fixes in the app. As GigaOm was quick to point out, this update means that Netflix is capable of running on 4 out of 5 Android devices, which is many more than were available when it launched only a few months ago.
Of course, the ability to access Netflix on many more devices than before won't help you find anything decent to watch in Netflix' streaming catalog, but I digress. You can download the updated version of Netflix for Android from the Android Market now.
