Never stop binging
Smart Downloads is a new Netflix feature that makes available the next episode of a TV show on your devices and deletes the watched episode. Starting today, the app will be able to automatically delete downloaded videos once you've watched them.
You download Season 1, Episodes 1-3.
You may want to turn the feature off if you want to be in full control over the downloading and deleting of Netflix content.
The idea behind the Smart Download feature is to make sure you have the next episode of a show you're watching available to you even when you're offline.
Downloading Netflix shows for offline viewing is going to get a little easier.
LeBron James officially signs contract with LA Lakers
He said: "He loves to compete and is an awesome leader who is about winning and making sure that his teammates are successful". We won't know the answer to that for some time, but James himself seems to be getting the hang of this L.A. thing already.
Netflix is improving the ability of its mobile subscribers to manage their downloads of binge-worthy television shows.
Today, we are excited to introduce Smart Downloads.
"You watch, we do the work", summed up the post, which is attributed to Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation.
Users can activate Smart Downloads in Menu- App Settings- Downloads section of the Android and iOS app which have received the latest update. For now, Smart Downloads will be Android-only and only includes items of the series variety.
The feature won't be all that useful if you don't download a couple of episodes in advance. And smart downloads will progress into the next season of a series. For those who don't like to immediately delete episodes from their devices, they should just turn off the new feature. However, the streaming giant has not informed exactly how much of the content on its platform is available for download. This means it can automatically download the first episode of the next season once users have finished watching the season finale. Netflix also recently released its first show produced in India, Sacred Games.
