The Android mobile application from Netflix, the popular platform for streaming of films and series, is constantly adding new functions and possibilities. Among these, advances the XDA Developers forum, we will have something really captivating!
According to the report of the aforementioned publication, Netflix’s Android app is testing the possibility of listening to movies and series in the background. Yes, listen to the content while we continue to work, or do another task on the device.
Listening to movies and series on Netflix?
The thesis advanced by the XDA Developers forum team is founded on the analysis of the test version of the Netflix app for the Android platform. More specifically, through the APK teardown, or the analysis of the files and tracks contained in the code of the app.
From there, it is common to find new functions still in development, or about to enter the testing phase. Others, however, end up being discarded if the responsible company decides that this will not be an added value for the public.
More specifically, in version 7.79.1 Netflix application for Android, the evidence found by the team of researchers points in that direction. Some “strings“of code are quite informative, as an example:
1. > Save your data by turning off the video and listening to your favorite shows. “
2. > The video is off, but you can continue listening to your show while you are busy doing other things. “
Playing content in the background
The possibility of listening to the films and series in seconds is useful when we cannot look at the screen, but we also do not want to miss the plot. Something that several followers of the XDA forum pointed out as positive in response to tweet.
This option would be particularly useful for podcasts, comedy shows and similar categories. Themes where the narrative thread is important, but not exactly the image. In addition, it would also save mobile data if this is a concern.
We currently have no way of knowing when, or if, such a novelty will be implemented (in what form and / or scale) or distributed by the Netflix platform.
