Netflix adds "Post-Play" feature for Android smartphones and tablets

Netflix has updated its Android app with Post-Play, a feature that gives smartphone and tablet users the ability to continue watching TV series or movies without interruptions. Netflix introduced Post-Play nearly two years ago on its website and has expanded the feature to the PlayStation 3 and various other streaming devices

When an episode of a show you are currently watching ends, it queues up the next one automatically and begins playing it after 15 seconds. The feature also works with movies, giving users three movie recommendations. The feature aims to bring convenience to those that like to watch TV series or movies in long stretches.

The new update will give users on the go, the ability to binge-watch their favorite shows. Android smartphones users will only see the Post-Play feature for TV shows, while tablet users will get the addition of movies. Netflix is also working on bringing Post-Play to Chromecast within the next couple of months.

The update is available now on all Android phones and tablets that are running Android 4.0 or newer; the update can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

Xbox 360 has been doing this for a lonnnnnng time (I'd imagine the PS3, PS4 and XB1 do too). Nice to see other devices get it as well.

The Windows 8.1 app has had that feature for a while, yes? At least the next episode part. I know I have fallen asleep and woken up 4 episodes later multiple times :)

The web / browser version of Netflix has done this for ages too :)

Why do movies only get this feature on tablets? Data caps?

From the article: "TV series or movies without interruptions." So, TV series are continuous now. Nice.
