Offline streaming on Netflix is not a new thing, the feature beeing available on smartphones for quite some time now. Now, Windows 10 PC users can also benefit from the option. This is great news for people who travel a lot and don’t have an internet connection as they can now see their favorite shows offline.
Windows Central stated that Netflix added this option on its newest update to the app available on Windows 10. In order to benefit from the offline streaming option, you should check for updates. After that, just update the Netflix app on your Windows 10 and you can experience this new feature.
After you made the update, when you open the Netflix you will see a notification on your screen. This notification states that from now on you have the “download and go” option. Since it is new, Netflix won’t be able to show you a list of shows that can be downloaded when you click on “Find me something to download”.
Not All Shows Are Available For Download On The Offline Streaming Option
In order to find shows and TV series that can be downloaded, you have to search for them. Usually, Netflix has the offline streaming option for its own shows. Despite this fact, on the Windows 10 app, not every show made by Netflix is available for download. Daredevil, a TV series made by Netflix is not available for download yet. Instead, other movies and TV series made by other companies are available.
The new Windows 10 app allows users to enjoy their favorite shows on bigger screens, instead of trying to see a movie on their smartphones when they are on the go. the only inconvenience being that Netflix users will have to wait a little longer if they want to download more shows. Rumor has it the offline streaming feature will also be available on Xbox and Window phones soon.
This new feature comes a week after Netflix announced the replacement of its five-star rating system with a much simpler like and dislike button. Moreover, the company managed to bring joy to the hearts of users by introducing a much-need Skip Intro button.
