Last July, Netflix added a feature to their Android App called Smart Downloads which deletes completed episodes and replaces them with the next new episode.

Once you have finished watching a episode that's downloaded to your device, Netflix downloads the next one and automatically deletes the one you just watched. As for how the feature actually works, well, it will identify the series and the episodes users are watching and then decides when to activate the automatic download action. The feature essentially automated downloads on Netflix so that you never have to wait for something to download when you are on the go.

If the feature is not enabled for your app, make sure you head over to the App Store and download the latest version of the app. To learn how, and for more information on Smart Downloads, you can visit the Netflix Help Center by clicking on this link. With new updates like the Smart Download app allowing viewers to stay tuned in with their favorite shows wherever, whenever, it's exciting to think about the possibilities where the industry is headed. The feature only kicks in when a device is connected to a Wi-Fi network. To do this, select the Menu icon and then "App Settings". And Netflix subscribers who don't want to use Smart Downloads can disable the feature.

Under the Downloads heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off. Today, the company has rolled it out for iOS users.

"The faster our members can get to the next episode of their favorite stories, the better", a Netflix spokesperson told PCMag. "The feature is one more way we're making it easier for Netflix fans to take the stories they love wherever they go", said Netflix. If you download and watch a movie, it's sequel won't automatically load on your tablet or phone.
