Never Miss an Episode: Netflix Adds 'Smart Downloads' to iOS

Netflix finally brings its smart downloads feature to iOS devices

That offline download list has grown in time and, after rolling out the feature for Android in the summer of 2018, Netflix now has made it available for iOS as well. "You watch, we do the work", Netflix said in a post announcing the new feature for its iOS app.

The Smart Download feature automatically delete episodes you have watched. The feature is created to automatically delete an episode before it installs a new one. Obviously, if you happen to download each scene of a series on the double, the application won't delete or supplant any of them once viewed.

Once you've done that, simply head over to the "downloads" section of the app and you'll find the "smart downloads" toggle at the very top. This feature obviously only applies to episodic shows, not movies.

If a member has downloaded episodes 3 through 9, and watches episode 2 and episode 5, the app will download episode 10 and 11, deleting episodes 2 and 5.

Senator introduces bill to legalize marijuana called S.420
The chamber has set a hearing next week on a bill meant to make banking services more widely available for pot companies. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris seeking comment on the legislation were not immediately responded to Friday.

Scroll down and select App Settings.

Put simply, if the user downloads the first three episodes of a new show, then watches the first downloaded episode, Smart Downloads will delete the watched content and download the fourth episode, even though the user has only started to watch the second.

Under the Downloads heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off. They will also have the ability to opt-out of this feature if they choose.

With Smart Downloads, watching a TV episode offline results in the next episode automatically being transferred as soon as a Wi-Fi connection is available. Some subscribers noticed a pop-up that asked them if they wish to "watch this scene again".
