Netflix Won’t Have A Vision Pro App At Launch So You’ll Have To Use The Website
If you are one of the few people likely to be buying a Vision Pro headset on February 2 you will probably be looking for all your favorite apps on day one. Unfortunately, Netflix won’t be one of them after it was confirmed that there would be no app in the Vision Pro App Store.
That comes after Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman reported the snub which will see Netflix customers forced to watch their favorite TV shows and movies via the website instead.
“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,” Los Gatos, California-based Netflix said in the statement. Apple declined to comment.
Netflix is the odd one out, however. Apple TV+ will of course be present while Disney+ is one of the apps that is being used as a demo app when the Vision Pro headset is shown off to members of the press. It’s notable that Netflix does also have an app available for Meta’s Quest headsets, so the lack of a Vision Pro one is interesting.
The Vision Pro will go up for preorder tomorrow, January 19 before going on sale in the United States on February 2.
The headset will start at $3,499 for the 256GB model and while Apple hasn’t confirmed more storage options will be available, that is expected to be the case. Rumors suggest that 1TB will be the most storage offered, however.
