Are you a Samsung Chromebook (aka ‘The ARM one’) owner? Good news: you are one step closer to finally being able to use Netflix.
Although Netflix works on x86-based Chromebooks, as well as on Android, support for the ARM Chromebook has been missing since its launch.
Google insisted that it was a priority and, in a recent developer build of ChromeOS, we can see that they were true to their word: a Netflix plugin is now available:
Note the version number of this ARM plugin, 1.0.3, against that available in regular ol’ ChromeOS, 2.1.2.
So the plugin has arrived – great news! Now for the bad: it hasn’t been activated yet.
Trying to watch Netflix on the Samsung Chromebook still throws out the ‘not supported’ error.
But its arrival in the developer channel is proof that you won’t have to wait much longer to get your couch-potato fix on the Samsung Chromebook.
