While YouTube set the foundation for online media consumption, Netflix has conquered the world of premium online content. While Amazon Prime Video caught up to the trend first, Netflix has recently released a new update that allows you to watch Netflix offline on Android and iOS devices.
The approach is pretty simple and works almost exactly like the offline viewing feature that we have come to love in the YouTube app over the years. If you aren’t an avid user of the Netflix app and need some help on learning how to binge-watch episodes and movies offline, here is a quick guide for you.

With the latest version of the Netflix app installed, you can go ahead and look for the episodes or movies that you want. Simply open the app, tap on the menu button at the top-left corner of the screen and tap on “Available for Download”.
This particular section contains all of the media on Netflix that can currently be downloaded and viewed offline. So open the content you want from the list and press the “Download” button right under the description to save it for offline viewing.
Step 3: Watch Netflix Offline on Android
Now that you have downloaded the content that you wish to view offline, you can find all of it inside the Netflix app itself. Simply open the app, tap on the menu icon and access the “My Downloads” section to see all the media content you have saved.
