The new YouTube Go app is already available for download. The new version is meant to make its users’ life a bit easier by enabling some sort of offline display of videos.
YouTube knows that something it might be tricky with having a highly functional Internet connection of devices. This is why the new app is made to work even for those users with a bit unstable Internet connection or for those who are trying to avoid considerable data charges that YouTube may often cause.
How is it possible that a video streaming service can be available even in offline mode? The secret behind this new app is that it allows users to download videos from YouTube directly on their devices.
Users can watch a short preview of the video that is meant to help them decide if the video is worth watching until the end or not, then they have to choose a resolution for their downloaded video. Thus, you can watch a YouTube video in offline mode. You can even share them with other devices also in offline mode, via Bluetooth.
YouTube Go supports several resolutions, but 720p and 1080p are not among them. Therefore, you have to download videos of a lower quality.
If you intend to download the app, do not forget to enable the Unknown sources feature in your Settings before downloading it. When you open it for the first time, you will be asked to introduce your country and phone number so that they can verify your identity.
Also, you can edit your profile and you can either search for people you may know or let the app use information from your profile to recommend you friends.
The app can also function as regular YouTube, so you can stream videos online on it if you choose to do so. If you choose to send the downloaded videos to your friends via Bluetooth, you have to know that they also have to perform a security check for each individual video. However, the checks consume small amount of data, so you don’t have to worry about that.
The videos can be downloaded anywhere you choose, that is either in your internal storage or on your microSD memory card. It is available for all versions of Android OS and can already be found in the Play Store.
Thus, if you enjoy watching YouTube videos, you can have them anywhere and anytime with this innovative app.
