Netflix’s newest feature automatically downloads shows based on what you like

Netflix adds a new mobile feature that will automatically download movies and show recommendations based on viewer history. Downloads For You launched globally on Monday for Android users, the company announced.

You will need to opt in to use the new feature. Once toggled on from the downloads tab, you will need to set the amount of space- 1GB,5GB or 3GB- you would want to use.

More space means more Netflix recommendations downloaded. TechCrunch said in a report that although Netflix’s full catalog is available with the feature, there would be some downloads that are limited because of licensing restrictions.

Netflix continues to improve its offline watching features;  in 2018 the platform launched Smart Downloads on Android, which automatically deletes downloaded episodes after they have been watched. Downloads For You is only currently available on Android but an iOS version will start testing soon.
