Netflix recently updated their Android app to allow users to download shows for off-line viewing. This was great news for many as it helped alleviate data usage while on the go. This was indeed great news but a lot of users realized rather quickly that they don’t have a lot of storage left on their phone. What would they do? As if Netflix heard their cries, the latest update answers them.
With the new update (version 4.13), fans can download their favorite Netflix content to the SD card, if their device supports one. There are a few problems already popping up, though, and quite a few unhappy fans are being vocal about it.
Firstly, your device must be “certified”–however that happens. There is not a lot of information available from Netflix on how to “certify” your device.
Secondly, this update is only for Android devices. If you are using your Windows 10 computer or another smart phone device to enjoy Netflix, you are out of luck here. Yep, if you are using a Surface Pro or iPhone, you are stuck using your data to continue enjoying Netflix on the go.
Thirdly, you won’t be plugging in a USB hard drive or anything sneaky like that and getting Netflix to let you download content to it. The app apparently recognizes the difference.
Have you tried the new update? If so, how did you like it? Let us know in the comments.
