You can now ask an Assistant speaker to play Netflix on Android TV

Android TV devices are supposed to have all the functionality of a Chromecast, since they also act as Cast targets. However, there are still some quirks that remained unresolved. Netflix integration with Google Assistant went live nearly two years ago, allowing users to say "Hey Google, play The Office on Netflix" (or something to that effect) to an Assistant speaker, and the content will start playing on your default TV.

Netflix Fast.com internet speed test now measures upload and latency

Netflix's Fast.com internet speed test is pretty much the defacto way to check download throughput. Since it uses Netflix's servers to test, you can easily check if your ISP is throttling your video. And it's more likely to reflect the sort of speeds you'll actually see in the real world compared to things like speedtest.net, which often reports unrealistic or inflated numbers. Now Netflix has added some extra info to its test, including latency and upload speeds.

Netflix finally redesigns its player UI with larger controls, -/+ 10s, and 'Next Episode' button

Netflix might be one of the most popular video-on-demand services on the internet, but it's by no means immune to mistakes. One of those mistakes was its now-former mobile player UI, which just wasn't very well thought-out. The company has finally redone the interface, and it's now much easier to use.

Netflix now lets you skip boring intros when watching shows on a Chromecast

As much as I love The Office's intro, it does slow down marathons a bit. Netflix introduced the ability to skip TV intros last year, but the feature didn't work while using a Chromecast or similar device. Thankfully, that has finally been fixed, so you can save precious seconds on your next BoJack Horseman marathon.
