Netflix adds 'Smart Downloads' feature for mobile users

You watch, we do the work.

Once this feature is enabled, the Netflix app will automatically delete the episodes you have watched and download the next episode in the series. Whether they are commuting, traveling or just in a place with pricey or spotty internet access, the download feature makes it possible for our members to take their stories with them wherever they go...

Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation, said that the new feature should make things far more convenient and quick for Netflix users.

If you are someone who frequently downloads TV shows from Netflix from offline viewing but forgets to delete and download the next one in the series, this feature is going to come in pretty handy. Called "smart downloads", the tool is meant to help users manage the Netflix content on their devices.

Survivor of fatal Del. crash: It looked like a war scene
Two people in the pick-up truck and one in another vehicle were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Mary Rose Trinidad and her husband were properly restrained in the vehicle, but their four daughters were not, police said.

Netflix is a free download from the App Store, but requires a monthly subscription to use. This changed back in 2016, though, when the developers finally added the feature to their Android and iOS devices worldwide.

Netflix isn't clear about what happens when you watch the entirety of a show's available episodes. But the service can determine with "high confidence" that you'll probably want to continue watching a show you've downloaded. Johnson emphasized that the Smart Downloads automatic refresh feature is optional. We assume it will delete the final few episodes from your device and then simply not download anything after, but you'll have to test it out to see if that's true.

You download Season 1, Episodes 1-3.
