It’s Official! Netflix Just Dropped The Feature We’ve All Been Waiting On For Years
The ONE feature Netflix users have been clamoring for above all is the ability to take episodes on the go, to watch Netflix content offline and save it for later. Well, at long last, Netflix just announced that this feature is officially live:
It’s simple: to save a TV episode or movie for offline viewing you just click that button to the right and you’re good to go (do this over wi-fi).
If you live in NYC, Chicago, Boston, London, or anywhere with a subway system which runs underground then this is HUUUUGE. Or if you travel up in the sky on a regular basis and watch a ton of Netflix during your trips this is going to save you a fortune on upgrading your Internet speeds. Though, most airplane WiFi is complete dog shit and won’t allow you to stream video anyways (I’m looking at you GoGo, you should be ashamed of your speeds and service).
Presumably, this new feature will come with an update to the Netflix mobile app for iOS and Android, and this will get rolled out in waves. So if you don’t have this feature instantly just hold tight, you’ll have it by the end of the day (according to Netflix’s tweet). I literally just got the app update while I was typing up this article, so yours is coming soon.
The ability to save content and watch it offline is a Netflix feature we’ve all known is ‘coming soon’ soon ever since Amazon Prime Video released that feature well over a year ago, but it’s always been unclear just how serious Netflix was about rolling this out.
