Netflix Just Made On-the-Go Binge-Watching Easier Than Ever

Netflix makes it easier to manage downloaded shows on Android

The streaming-video giant is launching today (July 10) a tool that automatically deletes downloaded episodes of TV shows from your smartphone after you watch and replaces them with the next available episodes, Netflix announced. "Whether it is smart downloading or viewing a mobile preview, we realise the best part of Netflix is connecting with the stories you will love in an easier and more fun way", he said. When the Netflix app detects that an episode of a TV show has been watched, it will download a new episode and delete the old episode only when the device is connected to a Wi-Fi connection. The company has announced that an auto-download feature is available for the Android app from today, and will be added to the iOS app later in the year ... Of course, Netflix requires a paid subscription in order to watch or download movies or TV shows, something which we're sure you know about already.

After making it possible for subscribers to download content in 2016, Netflix is making its download feature "smarter" and more binge-friendly. Smart Downloads will notify you when the feature starts downloading an episode, and you can even turn it off if you aren't a fan.

Varner, Kraft tied for lead at Greenbrier in West Virginia
The 27-year-old recorded one of only two bogey-free laps on Moving Day (John Peterson) and is blemish-free for his last 42 holes . On Thursday, despite a fine start, Lahiri was lying tied 24th as Webb Simpson , who shot 9-under 61, led by a shot over Whee Kim.

It's limited to episodic TV series, not movies, standup specials or other kinds of programming. Smart Downloads would therefore be more relevant to users who want to keep their smartphone storage optimally used.

Really good news for people that watch Netflix while travelling.

. Netflix also recently released its first show produced in India, Sacred Games. But the service can determine with "high confidence" that you'll probably want to continue watching a show you've downloaded.
