Netflix has finally made it possible to download movies to watch offline.

This highly-anticipated feature was unveiled on Wednesday morning, and it has rolled out for the Netflix apps on iOS and Android devices.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • On the Netflix app, select the show or movie you want to download.
  • Scroll down and look for the “download” icon, an arrow pointed down. For a movie, it will be located right under the plot description and cast. For a TV show, it will be located next to the specific episode.
  • Tap the download button. A progress bar will pop up on the bottom of the screen that will inform you when the download is complete.
  • Now, simply return to the app while you’re offline and you can watch that movie or show without an Internet connection. Make sure to have everything loaded up on your phone before you lose your connection.

Unfortunately, at the moment not everything in Netflix’s library is available for offline play. If you come across a title that seems to be missing the download button, it’s not a glitch; it just means that this content can not currently be watched offline.

This is why Netflix now has an entire “Available for Download” section on its app so you can specifically browse content that can be watched without an Internet connection. Included in this category is all of Netflix’s original programming including Stranger Things, Black Mirror, House of Cards and The Crown. There are also plenty of popular non-Netflix shows like Parks and Recreation, The Office and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In a blog post, Netflix Director of Product Innovation Eddy Wu said that many more movies and shows will be available for download in the future.
