YouTube has launched the offline feature that allows users to download videos to their Android or iOS device for offline viewing without internet connectivity in India.
Users will have to sync with YouTube to watch the videos. The downloaded content will be available for offline playback only via the YouTube app. YouTube stated that, “much of India’s popular YouTube content” is available to view offline.
John Harding, Vice President of Engineering at YouTube, “In a country like India, the future of the Internet is mobile… By launching this offline experience on YouTube in India today, we hope to help people move past the challenges of data connection, speed and cost to enjoy a smooth, buffer-free version of YouTube.”
For videos where this feature is available, you can choose to add the video for offline viewing by tapping on the offline icon. The videos will be available for viewing for 48 hours only, to help avoid issues involved with free downloading of copyrighted content.
Along with India this feature is launched for the users in Indonesia and the Philippines too.
