Netflix is pushing an update to its mobile application for Android devices which will allow users to select their SD card to save downloaded shows and movies.

Netflix added an option to download movies and shows for offline viewing in November of last year. Although it was one of the most requested features and was appreciated by users all around, many users complained about the app eating up nearly all of their internal storage. Netflix is now giving users the option to choose their SD card, if available, to store all of their downloaded videos.
To change the download locations on the Netflix app, go to settings and then select the “Download Location” option. You will now be able to choose between Internal Storage and Removable Storage. This option only determines the storage location for future downloads and, at the time of writing this article, there is no possible way to move the existing downloads from internal storage to SD card.

The update bringing this feature is now live at Play Store and users all around the world should be able to use this feature after updating their app to the newest version (4.13.0).
