Netflix for Android now lets you quickly spot what you’re searching for

Visual search in Netflix for Android

Netflix’s Android app hasn’t made searching very easy so far. While it’ll give you thumbnails, the heavy emphasis on text in results has sometimes meant scrolling through gigantic lists. It should be much more elegant as of today, however; a just-launched update has brought visual search (previously found just about everywhere else on Netflix) to Google’s platform. Look for a title and you’ll get nothing but pictures, making it easier to find an iconic movie or TV show based on its artwork.

Prefer iOS instead? Don’t worry, you’re getting a treat as well. As on Android, visual search on the iPhone can now help you track down actors, creators and directors. You can find everything Netflix has from David Fincher (such as House of Cards), for example. Whichever device you call home, you’ll find your illustration-heavy upgrade at the source links.
