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?

Please Update your app! The time for VR is now. With the Quest 2 and holiday season coming up, we may just see an adoption event like the Wii. We need a Wii Sports like game to bring it together, but Netflix needs updated as well.

Please update! 4k native content would look amazing on Quest 2 (i know Quest 2 isn't full 4k but watching a fu 4k buffer would be jolly nice
Agreed, it needs a major update, it is by far the worst looking app on either Quest, even more so now with Quest 2 and the video quality very poor. Please update!
