Offline Viewing’ Feature Is Now Available On Netflix For Windows 10 App

Netflix for Windows 10 now comes with ‘Offline viewing’ feature, which empowers Netflix users to enjoy Netflix content when they are not connected to the internet. Is this feature really what it says it is, or is there a catch? Let’s find out.

Although, offline viewing is a feature that is present since 2017, in Windows, it came a few weeks back only. Offline viewing is basically a feature that empowers users to watch their favorite Netflix content when their Windows devices aren’t connected to the internet. This feature was long pending due, but it has finally arrived in Netflix for Windows.

What to expect from Netflix ‘offline viewing’ feature for Windows devices?

With Netflix viewership seeing an upward spike on the Windows platform, it was the right time for the company to introduce ‘offline viewing’ feature to further appease the viewers. Netflix app for Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Google Chromecast already had this feature, so Netflix for Windows users was asking for the same.

The feature is named ‘Download & Go’, which is exactly what it does. You can download the content that you wish to watch later and do other important tasks. Once the content has been downloaded, you can watch it without needing an internet connection for streaming. A decent amount of movies and TV shows are available under ‘Download & Go’ feature.

If you are using Netflix for Windows app, then you must have seen a section named ‘My Downloads’. You can find all the content that you have downloaded in this section. A slew of titles is organized in the section that you can go through and watch at your convenience. On the Netflix app, just look for ‘download’ button against the content that you wish to watch later, and click it. The video will start downloading and then, you can watch it later.

Netflix for Windows app contains all the titles

Where a good majority of titles is available for download and offline viewing, you will still find a few that can’t be downloaded. So, you will have to stream those titles online. It may upset you to know that some of your favorite movies are not available for ‘offline viewing’ regardless of this feature making its way into the app. You have no other option but to wait until the feature fully engulfs the content that is available on Netflix.

You get to see a number of your favorite movies and TV shows if not all. The feature is quite useful because you can watch the content you like at places where there is no availability of the network. You can enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows on flights, trains, and buses, etc.

Watching content that is frequently buffering is nothing less than a mental torture. In order to avoid, the best option available to you is, downloading the content when your Windows-based system is connected to the internet. You can save the videos on your system and enjoy those whenever you feel like it.

Netflix isn’t the only streaming service that has introduced ‘offline viewing’ feature on its platform, but many other streaming services have done it, and that too, before Netflix. Just providing quality content is not the only task to be done by these streaming service providers, but adding new features is also of paramount importance.

What’s The Way of Deleting Recently Watched on Netflix?

Technical bulls

Netflix’s search option is not that great, and many users would agree to this. But, things can be sorted out by deleting recently watched content on Netflix, which is exactly what we are going to discuss in this blog post.

Technical bulls

Netflix may be good at a number of things, but when it comes to content discovery, a significant improvement needs to be made. I don’t know whether I’m the only one who is facing problems while searching for new enjoyable stuff in the company’s library or there are many like me who are facing the same problem.

I think there has to be a significant amount of Netflix users who are not satisfied with the search functionality. It is not easy to find new content to watch, which sucks because Netflix is all about entertainment, and when aren’t able to find new entertainment on the platform, then they leave the platform with nothing but disappointment.

Users instead of following the straight and simple path to finding the new content are forced to take help of not so user-friendly secret codes. Netflix should do something in order to make this a lot easier otherwise get ready to lose some customers.

Ideally, one shouldn’t be using the codes because after all, he/she is using a world-class streaming service, which is supposed to offer all the offers on a platter, but that doesn’t seem to the case. Netflix apps have a list of recommended shows, which are generated by the sophisticated algorithms, which keeps track of the videos that a user has watched already.

But, this feature can’t be used when two or more people are using one Netflix profile. I don’t understand how Netflix missed this drawback, but it is what it is. Though the algorithm to analyze watched videos is sophisticated, but it is not that difficult to make it confused.

But, there is one way through which things can be brought back on the right track. It is possible for a user to remove the shows that he/she has watched. He/she will have to go the Netflix history and remove the shows from there. With this, he/she can avoid the algorithms from considering previously watched content when recommending any new content.

What is the process of deleting recently watched on Netflix?

Here are the steps that will be brought into use if a user wants to remove shows from the Netflix’s recently watched list.

  1. The first step is to go to Netflix.com followed by clicking on ‘Sign in’.
  2. Type in Netflix username and password, and click ‘sign in’.
  3. The user will have to open his/her primary account
  4. Click the small arrow, which is given in the upper right corner of the screen.
  5. The user will see a drop-down menu from which, he/she will have to select ‘account’.
  6. Then, he/she will have to go to ‘my profile’ followed by ‘viewing activity’.
  7. He/she is going to see the shows’ list that he/she has watched so far.
  8. He/she will have to click on ‘X’, which is given right next to the show’s name in order to remove a particular content.

It is also possible for the user to edit show ratings. For that, he/she will have to click on the rating tab, which is given at the top right corner of the screen.

One must also remember that if he/she has watched multiple episodes of a series, then he/she will have to remove all those from the Netflix algorithms in order to stop the app from recommending them in the future.
