How to use Netflix’s downloads for you

Before using Netflix’s Downloads for You, please note that you can only use this feature on a mobile device, not on a computer or smart TV.

Follow these steps to start using Downloads for You:

  1. Open Netflix on your device.
  2. Tap Downloads at the bottom of your screen.
  3. Select the Smart downloads page at the top of the screen.
  4. Tap the switch next to the Downloads for you option to enable or disable the feature.
  5. If Downloads for You is enabled, use the + and – icons to adjust the maximum allowed GB of storage per profile.

When this feature is enabled, the Downloads for You feature automatically downloads content to your mobile device only when it is connected to Wi-Fi, and there is available storage space for the profile.

Once you’ve consistently downloaded content to watch offline, you won’t have to kick family members off your Netflix account because the account has exceeded Netflix’s concurrent stream limit.
