This May, Netflix started blocking rooted and unlocked devices from downloading the company’s app on Google Play. It was an unfortunate restriction that locked out many people and stirred up a lot of anger. Over the last week, some of us at AP have started noticing the app reappearing, even though our devices still don’t pass SafetyNet/Google Play device certification.
Not all of us are seeing the Netflix app return. My own bootloader-unlocked Pixel XL still adamantly refuses to show the app listing, but Artem’s is more than happy to oblige.
