Netflix users on iOS can now enjoy ’Smart Downloads’ feature

Back in July of 2018, Netflix unveiled a 'smart downloads' feature for its Android and Windows 10 apps to help manage the downloaded episodes on your device. "You watch, we do the work", Netflix said in a post announcing the new feature for its iOS app.

Netflix also pointed out that while most of its viewers stream at home, it also wanted to expand its market by allowing mobile users easy access to their roster of videos through the offline playback feature. However, if you've downloaded, say, the first two episodes of a series, finish watching the second episode, then Smart Downloads will automatically delete the first episode and download the third one.

Netflix have just launched Smart Downloads for iOS.

Smart Downloads will be turned on by default. Netflix bills this as a way for customers to watch content they've already downloaded, and then have the system automatically download the next episode of that show you're trying to binge. If you download and watch a movie, it's sequel won't automatically load on your tablet or phone.

Scroll down and select App Settings. The feature only kicks in when a device is connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Under the Downloads heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off. "Users will also have the option to opt-out of this feature".

"The faster our members can get to the next episode of their favorite stories, the better", a Netflix spokesperson said Thursday.

To enable the Smart downloads includes on your iOS gadget, you should initially visit the App Store to ensure you've installed the latest version of the Netflix app.
