If you’re having trouble taking advantage of Netflix’s new offline streaming feature due to limited phone storage, the company is coming to your rescue — at least for Android users.
Netflix is now allowing Android phone owners to download applicable offline content to a memory card. The company is unable, of course, to provide such a solution to iPhone users, who do not have access to MicroSD card slots on their devices.

It should be noted, however, that the update description on Netflix’s Google Play Store page states the feature is “not available on all devices,” which Neowin points out could refer either to devices without microSD card slots or smartphones that have those slots but still remain unsupported.
Offline playback came to Canadian Netflix on November 30th, 2016, with a selection of both Netflix originals and other TV and movie content, including Orange is The New Black, Narcos, The Crown, Scarface and The Office.
