YouTube Go: Here’s how to legally download YouTube videos on your phone


YouTube is fantastic but one of the problems that many of us have is that it requires internet access to be viewed.

However, it appears that this issue may be coming to an end as it will be easier to download videos and then enjoy them at later date via Google’s newly launched app, YouTube Go.

YouTube Go, which is available on Android, is specifically designed for those who struggle with internet access or want to avoid huge mobile data bills.

The app was released recently at an event in New Delhi and gives users’ the option of watching videos immediately or viewing them offline later.

Unfortunately, there is a downside. If you do choose to download the videos it will only be in low quality and not 1080p Full HD footage – or even 720p HD videos.

YouTube Go will tell you how much storage space you have and suggest what resolution you should download the video in.

You can even share the videos offline via Bluetooth which again may prove appealing.

Initially aimed at the developing market, the app is only available in India at present but is expected to have a wider rollout in the near future.

A beta version of YouTube Go is available for a limited number of users to download from the Google Play Store
