The download takes place only when a known Wi-Fi network is within reach, and Netflix will not use more storage, as it merely swaps out the old episode for the new one.

Netflix isn't yet ready to automatically predict and download shows or movies that you might want to watch, reports Quartz. But Netflix's director of product innovation, Cameron Johnson, says the company isn't intelligent enough to start predicting content you might want to watch.

According to a Netflix spokesperson, "this feature only operates on WiFi and can easily be toggled on and off depending on your preference". That's right, the feature is coming to Android smartphones and tablets first.

The feature is part of an update to Netflix's Android mobile app this week.
