When watching Netflix, the app will all of a sudden stop working and will throw an error. The only way I've found to correct the issue is to restart the device. This happens multiple times a day, and can occur multiple times in minutes or an hour.
First, I went to the Apps page and pressed on the Netflix icon hoping to see the option to Uninstall the app, but it wasn't listed.
I then went to the device settings and then to Apps>Netflix. The option to uninstall wasn't listed there either so I cleared the cache.
Then I went to Google Play and looked up Netflix. Uninstall wasn't an option there either, but there was an option to Update, so I selected it. I then restarted the device.
Errors are still occurring and causing Netflix to stop playing the video. The only way it will start playing again is to initiate a restart.
I haven't had this issue with other video apps like Prime Video or Disney +, only with Netflix. I tried contacting Netflix, but haven't found a solution.
Netflix is a pre-installed system app on a lot of recent Samsung devices so yeah, can't uninstall without root or adb.
