Netflix auto-download for offline watching hits Android today

The new "Smart Downloads" setup, announced today in a blog post, will automatically delete episodes that are viewed and then download the next episode once you are connected to WiFi.

Sadly there's still no one-stop option to download an entire season of a show, so if you're stocking up on episodes for a long flight, or a trip out somewhere with poor mobile coverage, you'll still need to do it manually.

George Clooney hurt in Italian scooter crash
George and Amal met back in 2013 when Amal attended a party at the Ocean's Eleven star's house in Lake Como, Italy. Clooney was taken to a hospital and the injuries are not believed to be serious, according to La Nuova .

After updating compatible devices with the new feature, Netflix will automatically delete your downloaded shows after you have finished watching them.

Netflix is figuring out how to make TV work on your smartphone, where downloading a TV show can mean less room for selfies or devour your data plan. Unfortunately, it's unclear if it's also making its way to iPhones and iPads, but we asked the company and will let you know once we find out. Said Cameron Johnson, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix.

Government won't meet Tuesday deadline to reunite separated parents, children
Its database has some information about the children's parents but was not created to reunify families by the court's deadline. Fabian told the judge that once parents and children were reunited, they would likely be released from immigration custody.

The app for both iOS and Android, however, is absolutely free, and you can grab it from the links below. Smart Downloads will notify you when the feature starts downloading an episode, and you can even turn it off if you aren't a fan. For the time being, Smart Downloads is only available on Wi-Fi in order to allow the user to keep control over their mobile data usage from the app.

For now, the feature is limited to TV shows. It's important to remember that the feature isn't adding a massive function; it's simply automating a process that is now manual, and will only suit a section of the user base.
