Netflix has finally added the smart download feature to its iOS apps after debuting it for Android in July previous year.

Presently, that very same functionality has advanced over to Netflix's iOS app, ensuring that your "downloads" list is consequently populated with the following unwatched scene and cleared of the ones you've just gorged through.

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. In addition to that, it downloads the next one as you're on a WiFi network. With the Smart Downloads app, Netflix can keep you up to date too.

The feature is enabled by default, but can be turned off in your App Settings.

How do Netflix Smart Downloads work?

Back then, downloading was still limited to a smaller subsection of Netflix's catalog, with studios like Disney initially not making their titles available for download.

The committee said the designs for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic medals will be introduced in summer 2019. Inside most smartphones , there are precious metal materials, including gold, silver, and bronze.

The feature only works when you're connected to Wi-Fi so it won't burn through your data. Then under the "Downloads" heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off.

If a member downloads the last two episodes available, and watches them, the app does not delete them and does not download the earlier episodes. In the last quarter, the company added 8.8 million new subscribers, including 7.31 million non-U.S. users.

"The feature is one more way we're making it easier for Netflix fans to take the stories they love wherever they go", the streaming firm says.

In order to access this new feature, you will need to first get your hands on the latest version of Netflix for iOS.
