Netflix rolls out 'Smart Downloads' feature for iOS

Netflix Smart Downloads

This feature doesn't stockpile multiple episodes, just one at a time. The streaming giant missed its deadline for some reason.

This is ideal for mobile users who watch a lot of Netflix content as they travel, either on a commute or a long flight. However, the process has been manual until now. As soon as you're done with the first episode, it is deleted automatically once Smart Downloads is enabled, and the fourth episode is downloaded onto your device.

"Today, we are excited to introduce Smart Downloads". Downloading offers a one time installation of each episode or movie on a network, then may be viewed whenever the user would like.

Presently, that very same functionality has advanced over to Netflix's iOS app, ensuring that your "downloads" list is consequently populated with the following unwatched scene and cleared of the ones you've just gorged through. From here, you can toggle Smart Downloads on or off.

Scroll down and select App Settings. Then under the "Downloads" heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off. Netflix missed that deadline, but the company on Thursday announced that the Smart Downloads feature is finally ready for your iPhone or iPad.

You finish watching Season 1, Episode 1.

NOTE: If there are no additional episodes to download in your series, the last watched episode will not be deleted. Once it's updated, open the app and go to My Downloads section. Such users often deal with dead spots where internet connectivity is low.

If you want to find out more about how Smart Downloads works, head through the source link below. "The feature is one more way we're making it easier for Netflix fans to take the stories they love wherever they go".

After the launch of Netflix's Smart Downloads for iOS, the feature is now available on all three major platforms. with Windows 10 being the third.

However, that task will now be automated thanks to the arrival of Smart Downloads on iOS.

This update comes after the feature was first rolled out to Netflix for Android in July a year ago.

As part of Netflix's Standard plan ($13), subscribers get access to offline access on two devices. They will also have the ability to opt-out of this feature if they choose, the company said. Netflix also claims that the feature doesn't eat into the storage space of your device.
