Netflix Adds Smart Downloads Feature To Android App

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.

Smart Downloads deletes Season 1, Episode 1, and automatically downloads Season 1, Episode 4. In the "My Downloads" section, users must select Smart Downloads and toggle it on or off. Users will also be able to toggle the feature from the App Settings by tapping the Menu icon and selecting App Settings. Smart Downloads also works across seasons.

The feature is part of an update to Netflix's Android mobile app this week. This meant subscribers could download a few episodes of Stranger Things and watch on the go, without using up all of their data plan in the process just to see if Will Byers can escape The Upside Down and if Eleven and Mike would reunite.
