BEACON TRANSCRIPT- Everybody loves Netflix. This is because they have a lot of interesting movies and TV shows that can be played anytime. Netflix has expanded a lot and it has a mobile app too. Another thing that is great about Netflix is that they add the offline playback feature.
Netflix offline playback is great for people who are always on the run and travel a lot. This app lets users download any episode or movie they like and watch it anytime without being on the internet. This is a good app for people who are traveling many hours a week. Although Netflix offline playback is not news anymore, the ability to store the content on your microSD is.
The 4.13 version of Netflix lets you download the episodes you want to watch directly in your Android smartphone’s microSD. Until now this was not possible. The problem is that not every smartphone or tablet supports this new update.
The fact that you can now store the content, take it with you and have it for as long as you want is great. In order to store the content for offline playback, you have to search for the option that is located in the settings menu.
This option is available for tablets and smartphones that have a microSD. The users only need to tap on the “Download location” option and then they have to select where they prefer to store the offline playback content. They can select it as their preferred option and then all the content they download from now on will be stored there.
Netflix can use a lot of MB while downloading movies and that is why users should set the app to download content only when there is Wi-Fi available. If they don’t they are going to have costly mobile data bills.
There is an option for users who don’t have a lot of space on their microSD card. They can select the movie or episode to be displayed in a lower resolution so that it won’t take a lot of space on their microSD card.
Netflix mentioned that the offline playback content has an expiration date. This means that you won’t be able to store that movie forever. You should watch it now so that you won’t regret later.
