Netflix offline viewing is now available on Windows 10

It was only last year that the media streaming giant Netflix gave its customers the ability to watch content offline, a feature people had been waiting quite a while for.

Windows 10 receives the big update

Now, the feature comes to Windows 10, the most popular platform for computers. Aptly named Download & GO, its popularity will no doubt increase with its addition to Microsoft’s platform.

Most of the things on Netflix are available on-the-go…

There is a special section in the Netflix app called My Downloads that allows users to quickly access all the content they save for later viewing and can include a slew of titles. As such, it makes for the perfect place to review all the movies, documentaries, and TV series on someone’s list, most of which have received the Download button for offline viewing.

…but now every single title

That being said, there are still titles which can’t be downloaded. These will just have to be enjoyed through streaming, although it is understandable how some might be upset over the possibility their favorite movie won’t benefit from this useful new feature coming to Windows 10.

There are many situations in which this feature can prove extremely useful, such as before a trip to a place known to have poor or no internet connection. Trying to watch a movie or a show on Netflix on bad internet is just torture, so with this Netflix devised a means with which people in these contexts can download content they’re interested in, store it in their devices and take along for the ride when the time comes.
