When we learned this week that something called “YouTube Go” is currently being tested in India, our first thought was “What YouTubers can you capture there?” Sadly, it’s not a YouTube version of Pokémon GO; but the reality of this new app is definitely just as exciting; especially if you’re the type to burn a lot of mobile data every month on videos.
YouTube Go is about to make the impossible possible for watching videos on the site: offline viewing. Users will now have the ability to browse videos they want to watch on the site; and using the app, can download them for later viewing. Also, they can pick the quality of the video, so they’ll always know how much data they’re using.
It seems to work a bit like the Podcasts app, which downloads new episodes to your phone when internet connectivity is good enough, allowing you to listen anytime, anywhere. You will also be able to share videos with friends and family locally, without internet.
Although the app is still being tested in India, it will eventually begin rolling out across the world. We can’t wait to be able to watch our YouTube faves on the Underground into work in the morning!
