Finished Bridgerton in one sitting? Loved Malcom & Marie? Aching for another season of Lupin? Netflix is making it easier to find your next favorite show or movie with Downloads For You.

A step up from the bingeable Smart Downloads feature introduced in 2018, Downloads For You automatically saves recommended shows or movies to your mobile device based on your tastes.

“Whether you’re a comedy fan stuck on a long car ride or a rom-com lover without internet, we do the work so there is always something new waiting to entertain and delight you,” Patrick Flemming, director of Netflix product innovation, said in an announcement.

Android users can opt in now via Downloads > Downloads For You. Choose the amount of content you want available—1GB, 3GB, 5GB—and click Turn On. “The more space you allow, the more recommendations Netflix will download for you,” according to Flemming.

Already available globally on Android, the feature will begin testing on iOS “soon,” Flemming said. “We’re always looking for ways to improve the mobile experience,” he continued, “and we’re excited to make it even easier for members to discover and enjoy new series and films.”

If you’re looking for something a bit less… intense, Smart Downloads are still available. When you finish watching a downloaded episode, it automatically deletes it and fetches the next one in the series. The iOS, Android, and Windows 10 function works only when connected to Wi-Fi, so it won’t burn through your data.
