The streaming video platform Netflix has introduced the new “Downloads for you” function, which automatically downloads content from the platform to mobile devices and is now available on Android.
The new Netflix function takes the lead over the AutoDownloads feature, available three years ago, and in this case it is not the user but the platform itself that chooses the content that may be of interest to the user to download automatically and that are available by if you want to see them offline.
As Netflix explained in a press release, the new feature is now globally enabled on Android mobile devices as of Monday, and will also be tested on iOS soon.
In the function, the contents are automatically downloaded based on the user’s tastes and previews on the platform, and the user can activate and deactivate it from the settings tab.
Likewise, it is also possible to control the amount of content that is obtained through Downloads for you, and when activating it, allow you to choose between 1, 3 or 5 GB. The more space, the more recommendations Netflix will offer to offline users.
