Netflix allows users to download TV shows and movies from its catalogue for offline viewing. They even have a Smart Downloads feature that automatically downloads episodes of a series you’re watching and delete the previous one so that you can keep watching the series if you’re offline.

However, it seems that Netflix will now be expanding further on that in a new feature called Downloads For You. With this, it won’t just download shows you’re already watching, but will attempt to download shows that they think you might be interested in watching based on your tastes and preferences.

“Today we’re launching Downloads For You, a new feature that automatically downloads recommended shows or movies to your mobile device based on your tastes. Whether you’re a comedy fan stuck on a long car ride or a rom com lover without internet, we do the work so there is always something new waiting to entertain and delight you.”

Now, this won’t download Netflix’s entire library and eat through the storage on your phone. Users have the option of turning the feature on or off and will also be able to choose how much space they want to allocate to the feature, up to 5GB. The feature is currently live on Android and will soon be available for iOS as well.
