Internet slow? Here’s a handy new Netflix app that you should probably download

0

Netflix has launched a new mobile app that tells you how fast your internet connection is.

The app is a mobile version of the fast.com, its internet speed measurement tool it launched back in May.

The tool lets users quickly determine the speed of their internet connection.

You do not need to be a subscriber to use the new Netflix app, which is called Fast Speed Test

The new app is available for anyone to download on iOS and Android and works the same way as the popular SpeedTest app, only the Netflix version is ad free and easier to understand.

Like the web based version, the app starts calculating the speed of your internet connection when you launch the app.

The app then performs several connection tests with Netflix servers in order to calculate the speed of your internet connection.

Commenting on the launch of fast.com earlier this year, David Fullagar from Netflix said: “We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider.

“When you’re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you’re getting from your Internet service provider.”

“Fast.com works in any country, and it is free for everyone — whether a Netflix member or not,” he added

Users can download Netflix’ Fast Speed Test from the App Store and Google Play.
