Whether you’re watching Stranger Things or Umbrella Academy, make sure you’re doing it right.
Netflix has a ton of features and options – some useful, some not so much.
Are you making the best of it or making a big mistake?
Here are some you might do.
No idea how to turn off autoplay
Autoplay is supposed to be useful, but many people find it quite annoying.
Especially when you doze off and suddenly jump from episode one of a series straight to episode ten.
Luckily, you can turn off autoplay.
Just go to settings and find your profile.
Go to playback settings and check off Autoplay the next episode of a series on all devices.
Forget to download movies and shows
You can save yourself a lot of data and loading time by pre-downloading some of your favorite shows and movies.
On your phone or tablet, select the three dots button next to the broadcast image.
Beat Download episode.
If you’re a bit forgetful, Netflix will help you automatically.
Tap the Downloads Tab below and you will see Smart downloads.
Check that Download next episode is selected, and when you’ve finished an episode, it does the hard work for you, ready for the next time.
There are also Downloads for you that finds programs and movies Netflix thinks you’ll like and automatically downloads them for you.
Sharing Your Account and Password
As you may have heard, Netflix plans to limit account sharing with people outside of your household.
But sharing your login details can also have other problems.
It can mean losing track of who actually has access to your account.
And when people go to your profile to view something, it can also screw up the recommendations that appear.
