Netflix is currently in the midst of pushing out an essential compatibility update for its official Android client via the Google Play Store. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade brings Chromecast support, in addition to mobile integration for the extremely popular Post-Play web feature.

For those unaware, Post-Play automatically lines up the next episode of a TV series for users to watch a few seconds after the last one finishes, without them having to touch anything on the device itself. It also offers recommendations of similar titles at the end of a movie.

“We increased the countdown slightly to allow for more time to grab your phone or tablet, but otherwise it works just like the other devices that already support ‘Post-Play,” writes Netflix in a post on its official movie-based blog.

To install the update, simply open up the Play Store on your device, toggle the hamburger menu by swiping in from the left-hand side of the screen, select ‘My Apps’ and click on Netflix. Then, hit the update button and the application will instantly start to download and install the upgrade from the Google Play servers.
