Netflix rolls out offline playback feature to its Windows 10 PC app

Netflix Offline Mode

Netflix rolled out the offline playback feature to its Android and iOS apps a few months ago, but Windows 10 PC users were left out by the company. Now, the online media streaming giant is rolling out the ‘Download & Go’ feature to its Windows 10 Store app for PCs. Netflix subscribers can now download and save movies and TV shows on their Windows 10 machines and watch them later even when there’s no Internet connection.

Netflix expanded its reach to 130 new countries, including India, on January 6, 2016. Apart from allowing users to stream and watch documentaries, movies, and TV shows, Netflix has started producing its own shows, including some popular ones like House of Cards, Narcos, and others. The streaming service competes with the likes of Hotstar, Voot, and Ditto TV in India. The download option was developed keeping the problems of irregular Internet connectivity in emerging markets like India in mind.

Users can see all the content that’s available for download by visiting the ‘Available For Download’ section that can be accessed from the hamburger menu. All the downloaded content can be viewed from the ‘My Downloads’ section under the same hamburger menu. Netflix is yet to roll out the same feature to its Xbox One or Windows 10 Mobile apps.
