Netflix currently testing a navigation bar on Android

It appears that Netflix is looking to replace its slide-out menu with something that’s easier for users to use and access. This is being speculated based on the new user interface it released to beta testers.

Noted by Android Police, Netflix has begun testing a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. It completely wants to get rid of the hamburger menu you’d have to tap to get access to. The new design Netflix is testing will make it easier for users to access their offline downloads as well and be able to see what’s coming soon. In addition to this, Netflix moved the Search function from the upper right portion of the screen to the bottom bar, where it gets a bigger icon.

Netflix rolled out a server-side UI update last year that got rid of the slide-out menu. It wasn’t an official release because random users are getting it whenever the company wants to install it on their devices for them to access. Take a look at some of the screenshots below.

If you’re intersected in the beta testing process and want to check out the server-side update to your UI. You can join Netflix’s beta tester program. Alternatively, you can side load the APK courtesy of Android Police.
