Netflix does not plan to release a dedicated app for the Apple Vision Pro, nor will it modify the iPad version to work on the headset. Instead, users will have to rely on the web version, which means they won't have access to features like downloading titles for offline viewing.

"Our members will be able to enjoy Netflix on the Vision Pro's web browser, similar to how our members can enjoy Netflix on Mac," a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement provided to TechCrunch.

Bloomberg reported in July that Netflix had no plans for a native app, and this is the official confirmation from the streaming giant.

While the browser version is expected to work similarly to the iPad version, it's a disappointment for subscribers who were hoping for an immersive experience while watching their favorite Netflix content. In comparison, Disney+ seems to want to outdo its competitor with four backgrounds inspired by Marvel's Avengers Tower, Pixar's Monsters Inc. Scare Floor, Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre, and a Star Wars-themed environment with Luke Skywalker's landspeeder cockpit and the planet Tatooine.

Looking at Netflix's app for the old Meta Quest, it's not hard to understand that the streamer may not be as interested in mixed reality headsets as other companies. Many Quest users have complained about the app's "terrible resolution," bugs, and overall poor quality.

Mixed reality headsets are still niche products, and Netflix probably believes that the Vision Pro won't have a big success among customers, at least not right away, especially given its exorbitant price ($3,500).

The Apple Vision Pro will be available for purchase on February 2nd and will include the ability to download and play movies and TV shows from popular services like Disney+, Apple TV+, Max, Discovery+, Paramount+, Prime Video, Peacock, Pluto TV, and Tubi, among others. It will also offer 150 3D movies available for rent or purchase, including "Avatar: The Way of Water," "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," "Super Mario Bros," "Dune," and more. Pre-orders for the device will open tomorrow, January 19th, at 8:00 AM ET.
