Netflix Launches Auto-Download Option For Android Users

Netflix Android users can now look forward to an easier offline viewing experience with the new auto-download feature. The feature will automatically delete watched episodes and then download the next one in line.

Netflix says the feature will be useful as follows:

Imagine you download an episode or two of Stranger Things at home and watch it on the subway ride to work. Once you connect to your office WiFi, Netflix will delete the episodes you’ve already watched and seamlessly download the next one in the background.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Theodore Sarandos while talking about the public transit commuters who may have limited or poor network coverage during their journey said “Young people who really like doing that, dropping the things on their phone, and also people who do short-haul commuting who basically don’t have a dependable signal on the train and all those different things.”
