It’s been three years since Netflix introduced Smart Downloads whereby your next episode would be downloaded and ready on your device for when you needed it. Today the streaming giant has gone a step further and has launched “Downloads For You” – a new feature that can automatically download recommended shows or movies to your mobile device based on your tastes. So if you’re ever stuck without an internet connection there will always be something available on your device to watch. The feature has launched today on Android and will be tested soon on iOS.
Of course you can choose not to use this new feature but if you do want to opt-in then here’s how you can do it:
- Go to the Downloads tab on your mobile device and toggle on Downloads For You.
- Choose the amount of content you want downloaded to your device (1GB, 3GB, or 5GB) and click Turn On. The more space you allow, the more recommendations Netflix will download for you.
