Netflix already recommends new movies and shows based on your viewing habits and now they want to take it a step further and just make the choice for you. The company launched a new feature today called “Downloads for You” that will automatically download those recommended titles to your phone or tablet.

Keep reading for details on how to activate this feature. I think I’ll pass for now. My phone’s memory is always full – I have to delete seven pics just to take one – I’m not sure how that works, but you know what I’m talking about. Plus, I don’t think Netflix has mastered their recommendations yet. There are a lot of times that I go with one of their suggested titles and end up bailing because it’s so bad.

The service is available today for Android devices and will soon be offered on iOS phones. They say, “We’re always looking for ways to improve the mobile experience, and we’re excited to make it even easier for members to discover and enjoy new series and films.”

The streaming service says users control how much content is downloaded to their device. If you’re interested in trying this new feature Netflix says you should:

  1. Go to the Downloads tab on your mobile device and toggle on Downloads For You.
  2. Choose the amount of content you want downloaded to your device (1GB, 3GB, or 5GB) and click Turn On. The more space you allow, the more recommendations Netflix will download for you.
