Netflix is one of the most used apps by Windows 10 users and Terry Myerson talked about it during its recent Microsoft event, as well. Now the app has been updated with Cortana support and other important features.

Netflix is being used by more and more Windows 10 users, probably thanks to the fact that many tablet and hybrid users have made the jump to Microsoft’s newest operating system.

According to the version notes, the official Netflix app for Windows 10 desktop and mobile users has been updated with support for Cortana, which means you can now use the app with your voice commands. Microsoft said the following:

Pretty soon, the remote control is going to feel so retro, what with voice commands. Now with Netflix for Windows 10, you can go hands-free in calling up your favorite movies and TV shows, using Cortana. Now when you want to look up something, say “Netflix, search for ‘Narcos,’” or “Netflix, find ‘Continuum,’” and get results right away.

Also, you can search and watch easily on your Windows Phone, too, and switch devices if you need to. Prior to this update that brings Cortana, the official Netflix app had been updated with a few design changes in order to make it work better with Windows 10.

The Netflix user interface was rendering significantly smaller in previous versions of the app on Windows 10, but this recent update has fixed that. Taking into account all these new changes, we can definitely say that Netflix is one of the best movie apps to have on your Windows 10 device.
