Netflix Just Launched A New ‘Downloads For You’ Feature!


Netflix just launched a new “Downloads For You” feature that will automatically download recommended TV shows or movies to your device “based on your tastes.” As of right now, the feature is available on an opt-in basis for Android devices, but the company will start testing on iOS soon. Netflix says this is an expansion of the Smart Downloads feature, which would automatically download the next episode of a TV show a user is currently watching and delete downloaded episodes after they have been watched. Netflix said in the announcement,

“Today we’re launching Downloads For You, a new feature that automatically downloads recommended shows or movies to your mobile device based on your tastes. Whether you’re a comedy fan stuck on a long car ride or a rom com lover without internet, we do the work so there is always something new waiting to entertain and delight you.” 

Android users are able to turn on this feature by going to the Downloads tab and toggling on the new “Downloads For You” option. You can choose how much content you want downloaded to your device so it can be 1GB, 3GB, or 5GB.

Do you plan on using this new Netflix feature?
