Netflix adds smart download management for offline content
11 July, 2018, 03:26 | Author: Leah Owens
By automatically downloading the next episode and deleting the previous one, the feature ensures that the user's storage isn't affected, while automating the process of downloading TV show episodes. The feature will download the next episode when it's connected to WiFi and automatically remove the previously downloaded episodes. "W$3 hen it comes to Netflix, the faster you can get to the next episode you want to watch, the better", Johnson wrote. The feature is only available for TV shows that you can download on Netflix, and not for movies.
The announcement came via Director of Product Innovation Cameron Johnson on Netflix'sblog. But as competitors like Amazon Prime Video began offering downloads, and as Netflix itself expanded internationally to markets where mobile connectivity wasn't as reliable as in the US, Netflix relented. For now, Smart Downloads will be Android-only and only includes items of the series variety. In the "My Downloads" section, users must select Smart Downloads and toggle it on or off. Users will also be able to toggle the feature from the App Settings by tapping the Menu icon and selecting App Settings.
It's now only available for Android phones and tablets.
The app for both iOS and Android, however, is absolutely free, and you can grab it from the links below. And smart downloads will progress into the next season of a series.
