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?

Did any one tried to contact Netflix directly? I support your request. lets hope someone get to see this
Quest 2 is now my primary method of watching content. Not sure it makes much sense to keep my netflix subscription if there is insufficient support for this headset. This is such a missed opportunity by Netflix. They should update with many awesome environments and create a Netflix VR experience showing off the latest tech.
The Netflix and Youtube video quality in Oculus Quest 2 is horrible! It makes these apps completely useless.
1080p for videos should be a minimum and 4k should be the target in VR.
The 1080p is the minimum in 2020!
I would love if this happens, quest really needs this!
Yes please do it i love watching on my headset.
Yes please! Would love HD support and being able to watch with a friend if they have an account (ie kinda like netflix party)
Definitely time for the Netflix app to be updated to support new hardware!

That will be amazing, thanks.
Can't believe this has to be even asked for... it's a no brainer.

I really would like to see this! It could be game-changing with 1080p and watching with friends.
Glenn Grammer commented
Just do it
Please make this happen

Agree and voted.
We need HD
And it would be great ti watch with friends/family who have a headset but love in a different city.
Also a bigger screen would be cool. The Amazon app is currently much better than the netflix one
Yes please make this so
Please! We need this.
