Netflix has announced that a new app specifically for the next-generation Google Nexus 7 is on the way. The difference with the new version is that for the first time with the Android OS, it will stream videos in 1080p. Awesome!
The new Google Nexus 7 is the only device that will be compatible with the new app. At least for now. Netflix will expand it to include other devices later in the year. Up until now Netflix had used standard definition on all Android devices regardless of what the resolution is on specific Android phones.
The 1080p streaming is coming to Android before it hits the Apple App Store. No iOS device currently has an app that streams to it in HD, so Netflix will certainly offer it for the next-generation Apple iPad, if not sooner, for the current model.
The new and highly anticipated Google Nexus 7 will launch on July 30th.
