Netflix Will Now Automatically Download the Next Episode of a TV Show – If You’re on Android

Smart Downloads will also delete those watched ”Queer Eye“ installments for you, but only if you’re not an Apple fan

Netflix has found a way to help free up space on your phone and let you keep binge-watching its content, all at the same time. Oh, sorry, not you, iPhone users.

On Tuesday, the streaming service announced the launch of its new Smart Downloads app feature, which will delete an episode once you’ve finished it and automatically download the next one.

That handy update will save you from having to manually add and remove files from your device. But it’s currently only available to Android users. Netflix did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on if and when it will reach iPhones and iPads.

“Since we launched the download feature in 2016, one thing has been clear — members love downloading and enjoying Netflix on the go,” said Cameron Johnson, director of product innovation at Netflix. “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… We also want to emphasize that giving consumers more control over their entertainment experience is at the heart of everything we do, and members can choose when they want to use Smart Downloads.”
