Following the release of of its updated app earlier this month, Netflix has officially launched its new Android interface today for users running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or later on their smartphones.

The new interface manages to fit a lot of content on your screen at once, and users will notice that there is a new 'continue watching' row at the top of the screen. This feature has been available on tablets for a while, but this latest update shows the content that you've recently been watching, and lets you continue from the point where you left off.

If you tap on any show whilst browsing through the app, you will now be presented with a synopsis of the series and a full episode list, allowing you to pick an episode that you want to watch. This is a pretty neat feature for users looking for something new, as you aren't thrown into the show straight away.

Another nice tweak that's been made is that movies for children are now organized by the age group that they are suitable for. Parents are sure to appreciate this feature, as it takes a lot of the guesswork out of choosing an appropriate title for your children to watch.

If you want a rundown of all the new features available in the latest interface, they're explained in the video below. If you haven't yet downloaded Netflix for your phone, it's available for free if you're a subscriber.
