Hulu announced today that it’s updating its Android users to offer both smartphone and tablet users the ability to sample new content for free. 

That update means that on top of the free selection of current and past episodes the Hulu app already offered, non-subscribers also now get new free content from Hulu Originals, Anime, Kids, Movies and Latino libraries. The update will put the free content available in the Android app on par with what users get on the free, ad-supported version of Hulu on the web. 

As always, the full Hulu library is available in the same app only to Hulu Plus subscribers that pay $8/month. Hulu notes that users can now upgrade to Hulu Plus directly from within the Android app for access to the full selection of movies and TV shows. The updated app is available on Google Play now.
