Netflix’s app is getting a cool new feature, but only on Android

You download Season 1, Episodes 1-3.

When you finish watching a deleted episode, smart downloads will delete the watched episode and automatically begin to download the next episode, when you're connected to wi-fi.

The new feature is starting to roll out for Android devices today and we're told that it will arrive on iOS devices "later this year".

A download status bar will appear on the screen when a new episode is downloading, and users will be notified when the download is complete.

Once deleted, the new Smart Downloads feature in the Netflix application will then download the next episode of the series in the background without prompting you about it.

Interestingly, during a video released to explain the feature, Netflix says that newly downloaded episodes will only take up as much space as an episode it's just deleted, which should help allay any fears you have of Netflix chewing through your phone or tablet's storage space.

After making it possible for subscribers to download content in 2016, Netflix is making its download feature "smarter" and more binge-friendly.

The Netflix app allows users to download TV shows and movies manually, so they can be watched during offline viewing.
