Netflix Adds Offline Viewing For Its App On Android And iOS

By December 1st, 2016 AT 6:00 AM

Netflix has finally rolled out the much-awaited “offline viewing” feature for its iOS and Android app. The company has announced a list of movies and TV shows that will be up for offline download within the app. We can compare it to YouTube’s offline viewing that allows select videos to be downloaded for later viewing.

Even though many movies and shows are not included for offline viewing, but Netflix promises to add more to the list. A new update for Netflix app on iOS and Android brings the Offline feature aboard. Users will be able to find the new “Available for Download” within the app’s menu. Once your download is complete, you can locate the file in the “My Downloads.” section in the app.

The easiest way to search if your show is covered under the offline viewing feature – just tap on the menu option in the app and then select “Available for Download”. You will then see a list of movies and shows that are compatible for offline viewing. Or you can just type the name of your favourite show or movie in the search bar, and if you see a downward arrow icon next to it, then it can be downloaded for offline viewing or vice versa.

The reason why Netflix couldn’t add everything is that the licensing restriction protects most of the shows and movies. It means that Netflix’s original movies and shows are most likely to make it to the list.
