Netflix, being one of the best OTT platforms, keeps experimenting with the plans and features offered in the app. As of now, the platform has introduced a new feature named ‘Downloads for You’. In this feature, Netflix automatically downloads TV shows and movies based on your likes and recommendations. The most amazing part about this feature is that it will automatically delete the watched episodes from the list.
Director of Product Innovation at Netflix, Patrick Flemming said that the platform rolled out the Smart Downloads feature almost three years ago that allowed the users to find the next episode of shows they watch. He concluded by saying that now the platform wants to connect with the users even more that’s the sole reason why it rolled out the Downloads For You feature.
How To Download TV Shows And Movies On Netflix Automatically?
- Open the Netflix app on your Android smartphone and tap on the downloads tab.
- Now, tap on the button saying Downloads For You.
- You will be taken to a new screen where you have to select the amount of storage space that you want to dedicate to Netflix.
- After selecting all the options correctly, Turn On the automatic download feature and you are good to go.
Note: As Netflix has said, you can store up to 12 Movies and a few shows in 3GB space. So you can assign a storage space around 3GB to 5GB according to your preference.
You can always switch to normal mode by turning off the automatic download feature in the Netflix app. In case you want to lower the amount of storage it occupies then you can reduce the space by going from Downloads > Smart Downloads. Another thing to mention, the storage space assigned for automatic downloads will be not used by the manual downloads. Talking about the rollout of feature for iOS, there is no word about that from Netflix. However, the platform is expected to start testing the feature for iOS soon.
