Netflix is the best streaming service in my opinion that works very well with all kinds of platforms. Recently, people using Netflix on their Android devices have reported of long loading time, which is not a good thing. Let us discuss this problem along with the possible solution in this blog post today.
Netflix taking a lot of time in Android-based devices could be as a result of incomplete activation of Netflix. You will have to log onto www Netflix com activate in order to activate Netflix in the right way.
Also, make sure that you have downloaded Netflix from a reliable source. If you have downloaded the app from a source that you have no idea about, then you may jeopardize the safety of your device as well.
Problem with the app:
Users have claimed that Netflix servers are perfectly fine as when they downloaded Netflix app, it works like a charm but when the android app comes into play it takes forever to load and even after trying to troubleshoot internet connection app is responding in an unfamiliar way and is force closing or is taking forever to load. Even Netflix prototype is working fine indicating that Android app is at fault and not servers. You can browse link to know more about this problem.
Users using Netflix account are not worried as it is free but those who have paid subscription are worried that their subscription is being burnt on daily basis pulse but they cannot access services of Netflix. Just perform and make changes to your Netflix account.
While users using Netflix claim that the app has never worked in a good way on Android and has always given a bad experience, older users who actually have used Netflix on Android claim that it was working fine a few nights ago, but it has started to give problems after the latest update.
How to fix the problem:
Devs have come up with a fix that if the app is not working properly all we can do is trying to wipe out cache files by either removing cache files from front-end settings menu or by rebooting and even removing the Dalvik cache hence making the app good as old one. Before this, you must also check whether your Netflix has been activated using link.
Also as there is no restriction to update the app necessarily we can also use the previous version of the app which was working by downloading it from any 3rd party and side loading into our android phone making sure it is free from any virus. As iPhone app works seamlessly as a universal app when it comes to working on an iPad or an iPod or an iPhone, Android app even after the OS and environment have grown so much as such petty problems one has to think why Netflix Tv is taking most sought-after platform as ignorantly as now and then every developer is releasing their apps as smooth in working as on iOS.
Surely Rooting might cause a problem in legacy hardware in which case only that cache is to be cleaned or removed which can be done once we go to settings and then software app selection and clearing the cache which not only makes app footprint very low but also ensures stability and reports that Netflix will start working. But, if it doesn’t, then you should log onto link.
However devices with present gen hardware are normally under warranty and have less chances of getting bricked if rooted so getting root access and using superuser advantages to clear out Dalvik cache surely maximises app stability and if server side is working and app is coded properly which means app is not a mere port from iOS then it would work seamlessly on Android platform. If you come across any issue in Netflix, then you must call at Netflix help center.
