Once you connect to your office WiFi, Netflix will delete the episodes you've already watched and seamlessly download the next one in the background.

Netflix's "smart downloads" feature will be added to its Android app through an update this week.

Sadly there's still no one-stop option to download an entire season of a show, so if you're stocking up on episodes for a long flight, or a trip out somewhere with poor mobile coverage, you'll still need to do it manually. With this feature, Netflix will allow you to automatically keep downloading the next episode so you always have something to watch offline.

"You watch, we do the work", summed up the post, which is attributed to Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation.

The order provided the administration with 15 days to reunite children under the age of 5 and 30 days to reunite all others. Fabian said two of those children have already been reunited, and another 54 will be reunited by Tuesday.

The Smart Downloads feature only works over Wi-Fi, with no way to use the feature over mobile data for the time being.

Smart Downloads can be turned off straight from the app's settings if you like. Control of the new feature still lies with the user, as-should you choose to do so-you can turn it off and enjoy downloads the old-fashioned and inherently more annoying way too. It's important to remember that the feature isn't adding a massive function; it's simply automating a process that is now manual, and will only suit a section of the user base.

Really good news for people that watch Netflix while travelling.

. However, this has been a limited trial for a small percentage of users across the globe, with the feature rolling out universally for all Netflix users on the Android platform from today. But the service can determine with "high confidence" that you'll probably want to continue watching a show you've downloaded.
