Netflix is just one of the many streaming services that allow customers to download content for offline watching. Today, Netflix customers using this specific feature are getting a little bit of an upgrade, which comes in handy while on the go.
According to an official statement, Netflix is launching Downloads For You, a feature that will automatically download recommended shows or movies directly to your Android smartphone or iPhone.
It might sound weird to let Netflix choose what content to download on your phone, but the company is confident that its recommendations are so good that it’s worth adding this specific feature.
Although Downloads For You is a nifty feature for those who don’t want to browse Netflix’s huge database of shows, there’s a way that you can turn it off. In fact, you can even customize the feature to download what you want and the size you wish it to download.
First off, you must head to the Downloads tab and toggle on Downloads For You (or off). If you choose to turn it on, then you can choose the amount of content you want to be downloaded to your phone: 1GB, 3GB, or 5GB.
For the moment, the new feature is available on Android devices only, but Downloads For You is being tested on iOS and it will be added at a later date.
