Great news around for Netflix users. You can now download your favorite Tv shows & Movies from Netflix and save on data charges. This offline feature is currently available for all existing as well as new users of Netflix Mobile application.
The download feature is available for both Android users with devices operating on Android 4.2.2 and upwards & iOS users with devices operating on iOS 8.0 and upwards. A significant amount of content has been showcased with the downloadable option.
Once the user updates the Netflix app and opens the app, a dialogue depicting the download symbol can easily be viewed against the content which is available for download. The user can click on the download symbol and initiate the content download. The users can also set the video quality of the downloadable content by choosing between the standard and high video quality.
For both Android and iOS users, the downloaded content will occupy the phone storage but there is another amazing feature for Android users wherein Netflix allows the downloaded content to be stored directly on the microSD, if available. This configuration can be manually set up in the app by selecting the Download Location under “App Settings”.
One important factor to be considered is the amount of data consumption which will happen while downloading the content. Hence, it’s recommended to use a Wi-Fi connection to download your favorite Tv shows and movies. Netflix users can check their downloaded content in “My Downloads” section and delete any content from this section by tapping on the “Edit” option.
This could be a bold move by Netflix as the users have been asking for this feature for a long time. Interestingly, Amazon Prime Video allows only 2 downloads at a time whereas Netflix has no such cap for content downloads. So as long as your device have good storage, you can seamlessly download your favorite Netflix content and enjoy watching it later!
