Youtube Go : Save Youtube Videos to Watch Offline [APK Download]

Even with ever-improving mobile data coverage and an increasing number of WiFi hotspots, it's often still difficult to watch videos anywhere you'd like. This problem is especially prevalent in less-developed countries. Because of this, Google has launched the YouTube Go beta app in the Play Store. The new app allows you to save videos to your device or SD card for offline viewing — potentially reducing your mobile data usage.


It works much like the regular YouTube app but when you select a video to view, YouTube Go will ask if you instead want to download it. Videos are available in two resolutions “basic quality” (which looks like 144p) and “standard quality” (possibly 360p): there’s no access to HD resolutions here. However, the app is designed primarily for regions with comparatively slower internet speeds on devices with small storage capacities.


You can also share offline videos with friends via Bluetooth, though Google notes this will require access to the internet to perform a 15kb security check once the video is received.

Judging from our brief interaction with the YouTube Go thus far, it seems to be possible to watch and download most YouTube videos. However, you're restricted to basic or standard quality; no 1080p or even 720p here, folks. During the initial phase, it requires you to enter your phone number and verifies it with a text in order to do some friend-finding later on, which is presumably similar to how Allo and WhatsApp operate. The verification process worked for Artem and Cody without a hitch, but Go refused to allow me to connect, even after multiple tries on multiple devices with multiple phone numbers.


Youtube Go isn't now available in Google Play, but you can download it now for free and try it before everyone else : Youtube Go APK.
