Netflix launches a new function to instantly download movies and shows depending on your preferences
Netflix has announced a new “Downloads for You” feature for its iOS and Android applications. The company says that this feature will automatically download recommended TV shows or movies to your device “based on your tastes,” and it’s thankfully completely opt-in.
The feature will begin testing on iOS soon, and this is how you’ll be able to opt-in once it rolls out:
- Go to the Downloads tab 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.
There is no timeline for this feature to come out to all iPhone and iPad devices, but it’s available worldwide on Android beginning today.
