Update Netflix-app to current standards and HD
I know the Netflix app essentially was a pet project of John Carmack and it was really great on GearVR at the time.
Now it looks like a neglected child and need an upgrade to match the wonderful new hardware of the Quest 2.
Please talk to the concerned parties (Netflix?). And John, if you´re seeing this: Blow some magic coding dust its way. Please?
Wishlist by order of priority:
*Update the streams to HD-material - 480p doesn´t look good. (never really did, but now it looks horrendous)
*Update textures in the enviroment (gives us more enviroments?), Passthrough as background?
*Ability to watch together with a friend or two.
*Ability to download videos to the device.
*Give some love to Void Theatre and let us choose backdrops, color schemes or even passthrough + some more control on curvature of the screen.
*Maybe integrate it as an Oculus-TV-app?

480p ?! I'm returning my Oculus Quest 2
480P is a joke, at least give us 1080p, please.

Come on, it shouldn't be that difficult. Give me the API and I'll do it:)

Dropping my subscription down until this issue is sorted. It's pathetic that even now the app hasn't been updated, I pay for 4k yet stuck streaming at 480p
I cant believe its been 7 months since the quest 2 came out and this app still hasnt been updated. Youtube and Amazon support higher resolution, Netflix should be embarrased at 480p...

Please update netflix and don't be an *** that coded this app to start with an user looking at the back wall
Ronald Treier commented
Please update Netflix. We're paying for it.
This needs to be 4k for those of us that pay for it to take full advantage of the quest 2 display.
What we have already is a joke.
Alexis Schapman commented
Please, really needed.
Do it already. I would even pay extra for the ability to have better looking videos.

how this is still not implemented is just sad....
Actually, it should be updated to support 4K, as the Quest 2 can support 4K. If you have a 4K account with Netflix you should be able to experience it in it's full glory in the Quest 2! Thanks Oculus, you guys are doing some amazing work with all the updates!!
Honestly, Netflix should be embarrassed to even publish such a ****** app. 480p? Really Netflix??? You have no shame?

Why even get an Oculus Quest 2 if I can't use it at its full resolution. Claiming Netflix support without this is a joke.
Truly unusable at the current resolution.
And I second the wish to watch with a remote friend, although I wouldn't be surprised if synchronization might be tricky and not built into their distribution infrastructure...

Would be a fantastic option for watching Netflix. The poor current resolution makes it almost unwatchable.
