Good news if your a Netflix subscriber with an Android Wear smartwatch as they have announced some awesome awesome new features are coming to it’s Android app. To start with their “Social Recommendation” feature that we have seen on other platforms will be available. So now the big news, the new update will bring Android Wear integration, pushing recommended movies to your smartwatch.

Here’s what Netflix has to say in its blog post:

First, we’re taking full advantage of the rich Android push notification capabilities to add images and action buttons that let you to watch, get more info, or thank your friend for a recommendation.

Second, for Android smartwatch users, we’ve created an Android Wear integration that alerts you when you’ve received a recommendation, and lets you watch, thank, play, or get more details on the show.

At present only the social recommendation feature is live with Android Wear support arriving in a future update. Either way I can’t wait to try it out and see how it performs on my Moto 360.

BeginnersTech was an idea I had one Sunday when I was bored. It is now not only a website but a successful YouTube channel that takes me all over the world. Don’t ever let anyone discourage you. Chase those dreams.
