Whenever I travel, one of my must-haves is downloaded content from Netflix.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who loves downloading Netflix shows, the company says that since they launched the Download feature in 2016, one thing has been clear — people love downloading and enjoying Netflix on the go.
The company has made changes to their download function with the introduction of Smart Downloads. Now, when you finish watching a downloaded episode, Smart Downloads will delete it, and then automatically download the next episode.
Netflix released a statement saying: “We know how annoying it can be to go through all your apps and delete files you no longer need; we also understand that when it comes to Netflix, the faster you can get to the next episode you want to watch, the better. Whether it is smart downloading or viewing a mobile preview, the best part of Netflix is connecting with the stories you will love in an easier and more fun way.”
If Smart Downloads aren’t your thing, Netflix has provided the ability to disable the feature by toggling it off in the Settings of the app.
Smart Downloads is initially available on Android phones and tablets.
