When traveling on a long flight or taking a long commute, it eases the burden of waiting when you have something entertaining you. Watching Netflix movies and TV series is one way to keep you entertained for long hours. But, having a reliable Internet connection is a must when you want to stream on Netflix.
Good thing Netflix introduced the download option so you can download titles for offline viewing. Before your travel time, you can download the episodes or movies you want to watch later, even without any WiFi network connection.
Now comes another dilemma. What if you have not downloaded any titles? What if you only have little data left or have a spotty WiFi connection? It means you cannot download any show to watch during your travel time.
Not with Netflix! The streaming giant features another level of offline viewing service for its users with a totally new and useful feature. Netflix now allows users to watch partially downloaded shows offline on their Android app.
Yes, that’s right! You no longer have to wait for your downloads to finish before you can watch them. Even if your download progress is halfway through, you can already watch the part of the content downloaded on Netflix. Your download will resume when you are connected to a reliable WiFi Internet or have enough mobile data on your Android phone or tablet and soon on an iPhone or iPad.
