Netflix app can no longer be installed on rooted devices from the Play Store

Prasad, 15 May 2017

The Netflix app for Android can no longer be installed on rooted devices from the Play Store.

Starting with version 5.0, those with a rooted Android device will have to find other ways to get the Netflix app. Those who already have the app installed on their rooted devices will be able to continue using it for the time being.

According to Netflix,

With our latest 5.0 release, we now fully rely on multimedia enablers provided by Google services; therefore, many devices that are not Google-certified or have been altered will no longer work with our latest app and those users will no longer see the Netflix app in the Play Store.

Netflix recently released version 5.0 on the Play Store. One of the main additions in this update is the presence of HDR and Dolby Vision, which is only supported on the LG G6 for now.
