One of the most convenient features in the Netflix app is the ability to download movies and TV shows to your device and avoid any streaming issues, even when most Internet connections are important. If you've already quit the ones already stored on your device, Netflix will let you automatically download new episodes of your favorite TV shows.
Unfortunately, iPhone users can not use this offer. Netflix only supports "Smart Downloads" on Android devices, with no official timeline for an iOS version. Those of us in the Apple ecosystem must manually download the next episode of The Office or Ozark .
How do intelligent downloads work?
Let's say you & # 39; In progress of the first episode of Bojack Horseman which is already stored in the memory of your phone. Finish the show and Netflix will take you back to the episode selection screen. Netflix will then start downloading the next episode, deleting the episode just viewed from your device. Pretty clever.
Remember, this feature only works over Wi-Fi. When you have finished a downloaded episode on your mobile phone, Netflix will not download the next episode.
Setting up Smart Downloads is not easy, it may not be necessary at all. Smart Downloads is enabled by default when you install the app. However, you should check again if the function of your device is activated. Touch the More icon at the bottom of the screen, scroll down, and tap App Settings. Finally, make sure that the button next to "Smart Downloads" is blue.
The next time you finish an episode downloaded to your device, the next inline will download in its place when you use Wi-Fi. If this only works for new episodes of Game of Thrones .
