Netflix Adds Downloading Functionality

Netflix Adds Downloading Functionality

Nov 30, 2016

Netflix is a kingmaker mobile application: its presence on a mobile OS is arguably a big key to the success of said platform.

Remember the days way back when, when Android didn’t have a a native Netflix app? After iOS got it? Those were dark days…

The app continues to be refined, and currently, there is an update that brings a very desirable feature: the ability to download content for offline viewing. This means that folks can download included shows and movies while, say, with wi-fi coverage, and then watch the downloaded material even if one does not have internet access.

It should be noted that not all content is downloadable; content that is downloadable will show a relevant icon. In the application settings menu, one will also find a spot for downloaded content.

One point: there doesn’t seem to be a way to select where the movies are downloaded to just yet. Folks that have Android devices without expandable memory should not care too much about this.

In any case, the app remains free (with a Netflix subscription).
