Wifi-Only option added to Netflix Android App

Overall the latest update to the Netflix android app isn’t considered a major update, however, if you are streaming Netflix and have a limited data plan (yep I’m talking to you AT&T and Verizon customers, among others), the latest update will be beneficial.

As you can see from the What’s New section on the Google Play store, “WiFi only playback enabled” . That means you can now control Netflix, so that it only works when you are connected to a WiFi network.


The one question I’ve been asked, is how do you enable the WiFi only function. To enable WiFi only function…..

  • On the main page of the app, scroll all the way to the bottom, until you see the “Account” button
  • Click on “Account”, you will find the WiFi only option listed there.
