No more tedious trips on which to depend on the WiFi connection or to end up with the data of our operator. At last, YouTube, the video service par excellence with more than one billion users daily, has followed the steps and good work of other services like Netflix, adding the possibility of enjoying offline content.
Google has already released the beta version of its new service called YouTube Go, with which we can download the videos we want in the memory of our phone or an SD card and we have already tested it, so pay attention because we are going to tell how to download videos from YouTube to view them offline with YouTube Go.
Download videos from YouTube
The first thing we will do, as in all these cases, is to download the application from Google Play which, as we say, is still in beta. Once we have it downloaded we register with our usual Google credentials and let it start running the application.
As we will see, the interface is very similar to the normal YouTube application, with a selection of recommended according to the videos we usually display and a search engine. Well, to download a video we only have to select it and immediately we will have the option to play it (PLAY) or to download it (SAVE). We will choose the size we want, Basic (3.1 MB) or Standar (14.1 MB) depending on how much memory we are willing to sacrifice and we will press SAVE.
From this moment the video will begin to download on our phone and once the download process is complete we can see it as many times as we want without connection from the “SAVED” tab, which is where it will be stored from now all the videos that we download.
We must not forget that it is in beta
Maybe during the first few days we experience some flaws, for example, all the videos still do not allow us to be downloaded and notify us that the author has not granted rights to be downloaded and shared, but we understand that will be something that will be remedied in the face of launch the definitive version.
