iOS/Android Netflix app offers sneaky PS3 remote control

Take control of your PS3 movie streaming with your phone

The Netflix app on Android and iOS devices has been updated with a hidden feature - PS3 remote control.


As the video below demonstrates, the mobile app is capable of remotely connecting to and controlling the PS3's Netflix application, allowing you to call up videos, pause and do other things via your phone (thanks Engadget).

To work, both your phone and PS3 have to be connected to the same local network, but it's never mentioned in the app instructions or on the App Store page, technically making it neat little Easter Egg.

Try it out for yourself (and then probably never use it).
