    Since the update on my Passport I am able to watch Netflix on my phone. I have not got Google Play services.
    How is is possible? No one else has mentioned this.
    Admittedly I have not watched the whole programme and wonder if it might be interrupted?

    I thought netflix as a sideload was working fine. Didn't know it was supposed to not be working.

    I used an apk some month ago and it always worked fine. This was well before this update.

    Well now you have it, enjoy it

    Netflix does not, and never has, required Google Play Services to run - only to cast.

    If you don't have Cobalt's Google Play Services installed, then Netflix will assume you don't have it, and will not warn you about its absence. If you DO have Cobalt's Google Play Services running, and have not patched Netflix, you will get a warning.

    Good to know.

    It does work with a warning of GPS missing.

    It worked fine a year ago from the Amazon store without sideloading, snap or cobalt.
    I deleted it soon after, along with Kindle, and no longer allowed Amazon store access to anything on my phone many OS updates ago.

    Same as any android app - pull down from the top and select your zoom/aspect ratio.

    Netflix always work for me, but with its different update video ratio change.
    Actually video is in full screen so part of right and left side are missing but the entire screen is use

    The zoom function doesn't change the video ratio, only the app display

    I have a Passport and Q5 too. If you change to 16:9 (rectangular), you will get the entire wide-screen picture.

    Netflix has worked for me since before this new update. I've downloaded it from both Amazon(i don't think they have it anymore) and 1Mobile.

    Never ran into an issue with Google Play Services.
