Downloading is a must for busy and moving Netflix watchers, and Netflix just made it a whole lot easier for you to watch your favorite shows wherever you go.
Last Tuesday, Netflix officially introduced its new Smart Downloads feature for the mobile app, which is a quicker way for binge-watchers to get their favorite episodes on the go. Smart Downloads automatically deletes an episode after you finish watching it, and will immediately download the next episode after.
Netlfix released a short preview of the new Smart Downloads feature on YouTube.
Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation for Netflix, said that the Smart Downloads is made to bring binge-watchers faster to the next episode.
“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,” said Johnson.
Smart Downloads is an optional feature, which means that users can choose if they want to enable it.
The new feature is currently available on Android phones and tablets.
