Netflix subscribers rely on the Smart Downloads tool, which can automatically download series and movies on Android and iPhone (iOS) phones for offline viewing. In addition, the feature also deletes watched episodes. It is the ideal alternative for those who need to save Internet data packets and memory space, as the system requires storage capacity, especially when multiple contents are downloaded simultaneously.
Netflix's intelligent management feature downloads the next episodes of the series that the user is watching and automatically erases viewed ones from being connected to a Wi-Fi network. In the tutorial below, the TechTudo teaches you how to enable the tool. The walkthrough was done on an Apple device, but the procedure was similar on Google operating system devices.
