Do you have a recently purchased mobile, have you searched for the Netflix app in the Google Play Store and it does not appear? This is a more common error than it seems and is due to the lack of certifications: the brand of your phone did not guarantee compatibility with the platform. But don’t worry, you can still access Netflix with just a few simple steps, still without HD access.
Leaving aside the controversies over price increases and the more than imminent strategy to delete shared accounts, Netflix continues to be the leading streaming platform in terms of content variety
Certifications are key
Manufacturers must ensure that their devices are suitable for playing series and films on the platform, also to store them with maximum security. If this is the case, and as long as the mark take care to implement the relevant licenses on the phone, he will have access to download the application. In addition, depending on the certification, it will be able to reproduce content in low or high quality. At this point, the level of DRM (digital rights protection) that reaches mobile influences.
In case your mobile is not suitable for Netflix because the brand has not certified it the application will not appear in the Google Play Store when searched. And if you enter the store with the link to the Netflix tab, the message “Your device is not compatible with this version” will prevent you from downloading the app.
What’s not showing up in Google Play? All is not lost, because on Android we are lucky to have access to applications through APK files.
- Download the latest Netflix APK from APK Mirror. The file is safe.
- Install the APK on your Android and log in with your account.
- You will now have access to all the films and series on the platform, as well as downloading content to your phone.
If you install Netflix from the APK because your phone is not certified, you will not be able to play content in HD, only in SD
A mobile may not be certified for Netflix at the time of its marketing and after receiving certification after update (The same goes for access to HD content.) That’s exactly what happened to us with a test phone: it started with no access to Netflix and, after successive updates, ended up get permission to access download, also HD content. And this is extensible to other platforms; like Amazon Prime, Disney+ and HBO Max.
