A few months after allowing its users to download videos for offline viewing, Netflix takes things one step further. The latest update to the Netflix app for Android allows users to save videos directly to the microSD card.

Netflix has added the ability to download videos for offline viewing a few months ago, so those who miss a certain live stream can enjoy it at a later time. Now, the Android app has just received an update that takes everything one step further and allows downloads directly to a microSD card.

To enable downloads to microSD, the user needs to open the device settings section in the Netflix app. Once inside there, the Download Location has to be switched to the memory card. When running the Netflix app on handsets or tablets that only have internal storage, the Download Location can still be tapped, but there is no option to choose, obviously.

An additional option that can be very useful to those with expensive 3G/4G data traffic allows users to enable WiFi-only downloads. The new Netflix app is available for download via Google Play right now.
