Xfinity Android Apps not Auto-Rotating

The Xfinity TV Remote and TV Stream apps on my Motorola Droid Turbo2 phone do not auto-rotate like the Xfinity Connect does and how they do on the iPad.  When might these apps support AUTO-ROTATE on the Android platform?

Update:  I have tested these apps on my Motorola Xoom Android tablet.  Here are all my results:

 

Device            OS Version                  TV Remote Version Stream TV Version Test Result

Droid Turbo 2 Android Version 7.0     3.5.1.003                 4.2.0.023                 Auto-Rotate fails both apps

Xoom Tablet   Android Version 4.1.2  3.5.1.003                 4.2.0.023                 Auto-Rotate OK both apps

Using the Xfinity Stream TV app on my Droid 2 does NOT auto-rotate initially while selecting something to stream, but after choosing something to stream, the stream DOES auto-rotate.  Seems the developers missed something.

i used a kindle fire 5th gen and a cheapo LG phone and all rotated automatically with the stream app. iOS also rotated properly.
