How to Download an Older Version of Netflix

If you have an older Android, the newest version of the Netflix app may not be compatible. This minHour will teach you how to download an older version of the Netflix app if you have an Android between versions 4.4 (Kit-Kat) and 7.1.2 (Nougat). However, if you have an iPhone or iPad that's running into similar issues, you can redownload Netflix if you've already "purchased" it on your iPhone or other Apple device. If you have never downloaded Netflix before, update your iOS to 11 or later (every generation of devices after 2012 is compatible with the update), which you'll be able to do in Settings > General > Software Update.
