While the room lighting and visuals are an interesting experience, the app itself needs a lot of attention. Even though you're using a VR headset and pointing to the letters of your password, you can't view your password to make sure you typed it in correctly. I would also appreciate being able to login to Netflix automatically if I'm logged into the main app. Would like more additional features such as being able to change the room and being able to move the couch away or closer to the TV as the default option makes you have to move your head to see everything.
Netflix have missed a trick with this one. I love Netflix, but why lock it down to particular headsets? It clearly works visually (for almost any vr headset that's been setup) so why won't it let the controller work? The controller works fine in the daydream app itself, but will not work in this app unless you're using the daydream view headset. Such a shame, I would have continued my Netflix account if this had worked but won't be now. I'm sure I won't be the only one who feels like this and as such Netflix will be missing out on potential revenue. How does that make sense?
Great app. Works as described. For those of you looking to pay back in bed and watch, you can! When sitting in the cottage, look up at the fan or light and point your controller at it and click. This will bring you into a dark void with a floating screen. In this void you can move and resize the screen. Lay back and enjoy! Good luck not falling asleep! I only wish the controls outside of the screen would disappear once the controller is put down.
The app doesn't even work, as in the Netflix screen just loads then says there was an error. I'm really disappointed because the view and the room setup is just fantastic, it would be great to watch programs like that. Please fix this, will be waiting for an update Edit: ok now it's getting past the loading screen and showing me the sign in screen. Turns out you need a remote to operate it? Please show some love to the cardboard users and allow us to simply click it or at least state at it to use it
Totally bummed. For whatever reason, I can't log in! We're using an EVO VR headset with a Bluetooth controller, and even if I open this app through the Cardboard app, it just loads up the login screen and won't let me click log in or start free trial. Tried taking it out of the viewer and tapping it, made sure the controller itself was working (it worked fine on my home screen and in other apps).
I used it on pixel XL and pixel 2 XL and it looks great. I use it as my get away from the kids to watch a show I'm interested in. This app does work with any VR headset, but you will need to use the daydream controller in order to operate. The one wish I have for the app is when you recenter the screen from the occasional drift. Is that it will allow you to recenter it while laying down. Sort of sucks having to sit up in the bed to binge watch while not disturbing your companion while they're asleep. I saw a post of comparing it to YouTube VR and moving the screen around. That would be cool, but it'll take too much away from the form factor of Netflix VR. Being YouTube VR's back ground is more of a blank slate. Other than that great app for me.
