Amazon has made it so that many of its videos available through Prime are now available for offline viewing. This means that Prime subscribers that own an Apple (AAPL) or Google (GOOG,GOOGL) Android device can download videos to watch them when they don’t have internet. This feature was previously only available to owners of Kindle Fire tablets, reports Recode.

Not all of the shows and movies available on Amazon Prime Video are available for offline watching. However, many of the company’s own shows and others are. More shows and movies are expected to be added over time. After downloading a video, users will have 15 to 30 days to watch it, Recode notes.

Amazon noted that two movies that will be available for offline viewing are Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Wolf Of Wall Street. These movies are about to leave Netflix due to it not renewing a contract, reports Forbes.
