The streaming platform today launched Smart Downloads on Android, a new feature that will always have an episode from your favourite shows ready to watch while you are on the move.

Netflix says launching smart downloads is part of its efforts to make the mobile experience more intuitive, and it designed the feature with your data cap in mind. Not a great deal of friction, to be sure, but it was evidently enough that Netflix has developed a way to automate the process.

The Netflix app allows users to download TV shows and movies manually, so they can be watched during offline viewing.

The Smart Downloads feature is available today for Android users and will be available on iOS later this year.

It's now only available for Android phones and tablets.

Smart Downloads can be turned off straight from the app's settings if you like.

The following video shows you Smart Downloads at work, while this help page should provide more information on how to make it work on your mobile device.

Note that the Smart Downloads feature is activated only when you're using Wi-Fi, and not on cellular connectivity.

Select Smart Downloads appearing on the top. It also only works with TV series - so it doesn't apply to movies, TV specials, or any other content. This in turn means that you will have something to watch on your phone or tablet even if you don't have good cellular coverage. It also could then automatically download the first episode of the next season when it airs, which could either be convenient or annoying, depending on how you look at it.
