Netflix’s App Will Not Work on the Vision Pro

Netflix’s app will not work on the Vision Pro. That said, it simply means that you will have to do it the traditional way of logging in on the web in order to access and watch Netflix on the $3,499 headset of Apple.

In a recent report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, it was disclosed that Apple’s upcoming Vision Pro headset will not feature a dedicated Netflix app at its launch. Netflix has reportedly decided against developing a specific app for Apple’s headset and is also not planning to adapt its existing iPad app for compatibility with the device.

What This Means for Vision Pro Users

This decision means that Vision Pro users won’t have access to Netflix through a specialized app, unlike other streaming services such as Disney Plus, Max, Amazon Prime Video, and Paramount Plus, which have announced their support for the headset. Instead, users wishing to watch Netflix content will need to do so via a web browser.

This workaround is expected to result in a less immersive viewing experience compared to a dedicated app. Additionally, it could limit users from watching content offline and might impose restrictions on video resolution, as Netflix’s web app quality varies across different browsers.

While Netflix did create an app for Meta’s Quest headsets, it’s noted that this app is relatively outdated.

Netflix’s Spokesperson Kumiko Hidaka’s Comment on the Matter

Netflix spokesperson Kumiko Hidaka commented on the matter, stating, “Our members will be able to enjoy Netflix on the web browser on the Vision Pro, similar to how our members can enjoy Netflix on Macs.” As of yet, Apple has not responded to The Verge’s request for comment regarding this development.

The Vision Pro Will Debut with 3D Movies

Apple’s recent announcement, which did not include Netflix, highlighted that the Vision Pro will debut with 3D movies and experiences from Disney Plus and Apple TV. The absence of Netflix from the $3,499 headset could potentially make it less appealing to consumers who are interested in using the device primarily for streaming their favorite shows and movies.
