Now watch your favorite YouTube videos offline. Yes, you heard it right! YouTube goes offline for its customers in India. You can watch videos on YouTube even if you are not connected to WiFi or mobile internet network.
This is a new feature in YouTube mobile app which lets people take videos offline to watch later during short periods of low or no internet connectivity. For videos where this feature is available, people can choose to add the video for offline viewing by tapping on the offline icon that sits under the video frame.
Once taken offline, videos can be played back without an Internet connection for 48 hours, allowing people to enjoy YouTube videos without worrying about slow connections. YouTube has partnered with Yashraj Films, T-Series and Saregama for offering offline videos.
Access to high-speed, affordable data remains a big challenge for our Indian YouTube fans, so we’ve been working on creating new ways to use our product with a lesser burden on data and speed said Google in an official blog post.
This is a great initiative by Google in India where internet connectivity is still a problem. This would be a game changer!
