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?
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.

Netflix 1080hd please
Please... It's very very very important to have Netflix in HD on the Quest2....
Million of users want this
Please upgrade the resolution to acceptable one. One that fit the Quest 2 resolution perfectly at least. It's disgustingly aweful to watch Netflix actually. So I don't use it. I use only PRIME in my Quest 2 because of that. Or Youtube. It's pretty sad cause I ordered the Oculus to watch TV by night at first. And of course, the no1 streaming service: Netflix (but the lowest quality in Oculus headsets).

Eric Prostko commented
Better resolution please. It possible on my cell phone, let's ********* the quest 2 too.

I will buy oculus quest 2 if they fix Netflix. That's the only reason I would buy it to be honest
I would go insane being stuck at 480p.. I have 3 Quest 2 and can't believe that there's still no update.
Amazon is already way ahead in this..Amazon looks perfectly sharp.
Netflix 480P blurred mess.

Please update the Oculus app. You need more apps like this one for general purpose use of the Quest and leaving it to become outdated is not wise. Once everyone has tried the rollercoasters in VR and had a play around in a couple of games, these sorts of apps are what keep people coming back.
Im not buying this device just because I found this out. You need to push netflix to give its usual resolutions in Oculus. The oculus can display near 4k.
I wouldnt even care if it displayed it as a flat image. I just want higher resolution.

It really sucks. Please update it allready. Amazon is way ahead of you.
A clumsy workaround: Run netflix in Firefox with the HD Firefox Plugin and stream it to your Quest 2 with Virtual desktop. Even sharper than the PrimeVideoVR App.
You need your PC running and a good 5Ghz Wifi though.
It is a shame that we have to do such workarounds.
Please improve the quality
I want netflix app on oculus in 1080p
