Netflix auto-download for offline watching hits Android today

With "smart downloads", Netflix will automatically delete an episode when a user finishes watching it and then download the next one, too.

"You watch, we do the work", summed up the post, which is attributed to Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation.

The feature is flawless for those who love binge watching TV shows, don't want to burn through their data allowance, and certainly do not like the process of going through the download process manually. The company has announced that an auto-download feature is available for the Android app from today, and will be added to the iOS app later in the year ...

After updating compatible devices with the new feature, Netflix will automatically delete your downloaded shows after you have finished watching them. Called "smart downloads", the tool is meant to help users manage the Netflix content on their devices. Before you Smart Download any of those, however, this otherwise knowledgeless writer recommends you dive into as many consecutive episodes as you possibly can of Bill Nye Saves the World. But obviously, you must stop by a WiFi hotspot in order to make everything happen. The feature will be available for Android devices starting today.

Smart downloads are one-for-one.

It's limited to episodic TV series, not movies, standup specials or other kinds of programming. Control of the new feature still lies with the user, as-should you choose to do so-you can turn it off and enjoy downloads the old-fashioned and inherently more annoying way too.
