Today Netflix announced a new download feature called Smart Download. With this feature, Netflix will allow you to automatically keep downloading the next episode so you always have something to watch offline.
With Smart Download every time you finish an episode Netflix will auto download the next episode and delete the one you just finished to free up space.
“We also want to emphasize that giving consumers more control over their entertainment experience is at the heart of everything we do, and members can choose when they want to use Smart Downloads.” Said Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix. “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.”
Here is a video explaining Smart Download:
Here is how Smart Downloads work:
- You download Season 1, Episodes 1-3.
- You finish watching Season 1, Episode 1.
- Smart Downloads deletes Season 1, Episode 1, and automatically downloads Season 1, Episode 4.
Currently, Smart Downloads only works on Android phones and tablets.
