It has been a couple of months since Netflix announced that they were introducing offline viewing capabilities. What this means is that users can download movies that they want to watch so that in the event that they don’t have internet, like if they’re on a plane, for example, they’ll be able to watch their shows.

However downloading movies for offline viewing requires that you have enough space available, and the good news for Android users is that it looks like in the latest update for the app, Netflix has introduced support for saving downloaded content onto your SD card. This means that if you’re low on native storage not to worry as you’ll be able to push your downloaded Netflix content onto your SD card.

All users have to do is go to their “App Settings” in Netflix and choose “Download Location”. From there users will be able to select their SD card as the location for downloaded movies as you can see in the screenshot above. The update should already be live so pop on over to the Google Play Store for the download.

Offline viewing was originally a feature that back in 2014, Netflix seemed to be very against. However following their international expansion, the company has softened their stance and released the feature last November. It turns out it was a good idea because following the release, Netflix managed to become the top grossing app in the US.
