Netflix new feature launched
Currently, Netflix lets users download content to their mobile and tablet devices for offline viewing. With this new feature coming in, the video streaming platform takes a step ahead. The partially downloading feature will help users in situations when a movie they wanted to watch on a flight or area with poor internet connectivity was not downloaded completely.
The feature will allow Netflix users to watch some of the content even though the device is not connected to stable WiFi network. Once the device gets access to a good network, the download will continue or users will have the option to cancel if the movie didn’t interest them.
There have been several instances when we put a movie/web series for download but due to connectivity issue the download could not be completed. The new Netflix feature will help users in such a scenario. Until now, users didn’t have the ability to watch movies offline until it’s completely download.
