Youtube Go, the offline Youtube app has launched officially in India (beta).
The app is designed to be offline first and improve the experience of watching videos on a slower network; it gives you more control over data usage, by providing choice and transparency into the amount of data spent on streaming or saving videos.
Key features of YouTube Go include:
- A home built for you: YouTube Go home screen features trending and popular videos in your area, so that you can find and discover videos that you and your community care about.
- Preview videos before you save or watch: See a preview of the video when you tap on a thumbnail, giving you a better sense of what the video is about before you decide if you want to watch it.
- Choose your resolution when saving or streaming videos: You can choose to save a video for offline viewing later or stream it now. And we also allow you to choose the amount of data you’d like to spend on that video.
