Netflix rolled out some more website changes Wednesday, May 16. This time the company updated its web player. The changes were explained on the company’s blog.
Some of the new features include:
- The size of the controls now scales, making it easier to use the player on large screens, for example if you connect your computer to your TV
- Similarly, the player will scale down to smaller windows, which is useful if you want to watch something while working in another window. Also, the video now stretches to the full window in the browser
- Full screen mode now has all the features of browser mode so you can view season/episode information and change to the next episode when watching a TV show
- Pausing the video now shows more information about the title
How do you feel about the changes?
