A content caching system caches content, predicted to be streamed in the future, locally at a device, thereby, enabling faster access to the content for a user of the device. The system indexes metadata describing content being offered by a media streaming application. Further, the system receives information about past content previously accessed by a user on the media streaming application. Based on the indexed metadata and the received information, the system determines content that will be accessed by the user in the future. Then, the system sends information about the determined content to be cached at the media streaming application. Further, the media streaming application caches the determined content locally at the device.
