Netflix, the streaming video service, is designed to work with an Internet connection. It is the same as Spotify in music and, in reality, with any service or application of this type. But what about when we don’t have a connection available? No problem, because the application gives us the option to download series locally, as well as the films and also documentaries.
This feature of Netflix, that of download series, films and documentaries, it is the ideal one when we are going on a trip and we do not want to spend megabytes of our mobile rate. Or when we are going to go by plane, for example, and we are going to be for a few hours without an Internet connection. Whatever the reason, as we were advancing, the app has the possibility of downloading the multimedia contents and playing them effectively without using the Internet connection; no need for WiFi, and no mobile data either.
How to download Netflix series and movies on your Android mobile
Open the app Netflix On your mobile or tablet, access your user profile and select any content. It can be a movie, a series or a documentary, but the intention is to open the content tab, as it appears in the first of the following two screenshots. In it you will see the access to the film or, as in the capture, the breakdown of the different chapters of a series. And just to the right of the access to the chapter in question we can see a icon arrow-shaped, pointing downward and with a horizontal line.
By clicking on this icon, this chapter will automatically be added to the download queue. In the main icon bar, at the bottom of the screen, we have access to the section of downloads of the application, which is where this and the rest of the content that we have selected to download will appear. And by opening this section we can see what we have available, or what is being downloaded and what is the download process. We can see the remaining time, as well as the weight of the contents.
In the app, if we click on that bottom bar on Plus, We can access Application Settings. And in this section we can set the ‘Download video quality’ to Standard or High. That will define the image and sound quality, but also the space that the files will occupy in the internal storage of our smartphone. And obviously, the time it will take to download these contents.
