Netflix announced on Wednesday that its users can now download shows and movies to watch offline. Users had heavily requested the new feature, and Netflix finally acquiesced. The company said that “while many members enjoy watching Netflix at home, we’ve heard from others who want to continue their Stranger Things binge while on a plane, or save episodes of The Crown to watch later.” The feature will be available on Android and iOS devices and computers.
