Netflix finally launches Smart Downloads feature on iPhone and iPad

Netflix Smart Downloads

Netflix has finally brought the Smart Downloads feature to the app's iOS version, after originally launching it for the Android app back in July previous year.

The iOS version of the Smart Download app is available starting today in the app store, so go grab your download today and start binge watching. Let's say you download the first three episodes of a show that you want to watch offline.

Smart Downloads builds upon this feature, taking over the management aspect so that users will always have offline access to the latest episodes of their favorite shows. Of course if you prefer to do things the old way, you can disable this feature.

For more information, check out Smart Downloads on the Netflix help center.

When you've done that, basically head over to the "downloads" area of the application and you'll find the "smart downloads" switch at the exceptionally top. The feature is also available for Windows 10 devices.

NOTE: If there are no additional episodes to download in your series, the last watched episode will not be deleted.

Scroll down and select App Settings.

Netflix's Smart Downloads feature is flawless for those on the go, like anyone who often rides on underground trains.

Amazon Prime Video and CBS All Access also allow users to download content, and Hulu said a year ago in May that it would soon add the feature. However, the app only works when your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network, so be sure to get all of your downloads finished before heading out.

"We're trying out a feature which gives Netflix members the ability to rewatch favorite scenes and memorable moments with the click of a button", the streaming firm said.
