Netflix India has introduced a new “Downloads For You” feature that allows customers to never see content when they are not connected to the internet. The Netflix Downloads For You is a continuation of the Netflix Smart Downloads feature that the brand introduced three years ago.
With the new “Downloads for You” feature, Netflix users always have something to watch in their offline library to avoid boredom while traveling or in other situations. This is how the function works.
What is Netflix ‘Downloads for You’
With the “Downloads for you” function, recommended shows or films are automatically downloaded to your mobile device according to your taste. Netflix also gives users control over how much the app can download itself.
Netflix ‘Downloads For You’ is currently only available for Android devices. However, the company plans to test the feature on iOS soon. However, before the feature can work and download recommended titles for you, users must sign up for the Downloads For You feature.
How to sign up for Netflix Downloads For You
Signing up only takes two steps. First, open the Netflix app on your device and navigate to the Downloads tab. Here you will find the Downloads For You button. Turn it on
Once that’s done, users can set a limit on how much content can be downloaded. The limit can be set to either 1 GB, 3 GB or 5 GB. The more space you allow, the more recommendations will be downloaded offline for later viewing. Once this is set, click “Power On”. Just like Smart Downloads, this feature will only download songs when you’re on a Wi-Fi network, so you don’t unknowingly consume your mobile data plan.
That’s it. Now Netflix will download recommendations for you and have them ready to watch offline. The recommendations are based on your interests. So if you watch a lot of comedy, action, or drama, expect similar genres to show up in your offline library over time.
