Netflix rolls out feature that will auto-download shows for users based on what they watch


Streaming giant Netflix is rolling out a feature that will auto-download shows and movies for users based on their viewing history and what they watch.

The feature named "Downloads for You" is currently available for Android users globally and only on a mobile. 


Users have to go to the Downloads tab and turn the toggle on for the "Downloads for You" option. They can select from 1GB, 3GB, or 5GB for the recommended downloads. 

Netflix will determine what its users want to watch by going through their Netflix watch history. This is one step further than just displaying suggestions for users.

The Downloads for You feature will also come in handy to users who want to get access to more offline content on the go.


According to the company, it will start testing the feature on iOS soon.
