Netflix Launches Smart Automatic Download Feature’Downloads For You’ Globally
February 23, 2021
Three years ago, the streaming service introduced Smart Downloads so viewers can find the next episode of their favorite show – even when they’re on the go. Now, the company wants to make discovering the next new favorite series or film quick and easy whether connected or not.
Netflix has launched Downloads For You, a new feature that automatically downloads recommended shows or movies to the user’s mobile device based on their tastes.
The users are always in control of how much is downloaded to their devices. It takes two simple steps to opt in:
- Go to the Downloads tab on your mobile device and toggle on Downloads For You.
- Choose the amount of content you want downloaded to your device (1GB, 3GB, or 5GB) and click Turn On. The more space you allow, the more recommendations Netflix will download for you.
The feature is now available on Android globally and will be testing soon on iOS. Netflix claims to be always looking for ways to improve the mobile experience, and that they are excited to make it even easier for members to discover and enjoy new series and films.
