Google’s First Offline YouTube App ‘YouTube Go’ Launched In India
Youtube Go has finally become available for download on Google Play in India, six months after its unveiling. Google has introduced its first offline Youtube app to target, billions of internet users from this part of the world.
In 2014, Youtube introduced an offline mode, which allowed users to save YouTube videos which could be seen offline, without and any internet connection. With YouTube Go, the video streaming platform has used this idea to create an app from scratch, which is designed to run on a poor or zero percent internet connectivity. Users will be given resolution options for saving and streaming these videos. The app will allow you to preview videos with a single tap.
It has been in works for over a year now, it was available in some parts of the world, and is now available in India as well. It is a beta product for now, which also allows you to share videos with friends. Google plans to modify the app throughout its beta cycle.
India is slowly taking over US, and becoming the second largest smartphone market for the units shipped. With Google already full in, Facebook is also investing in India, along with Samsung which recently launched its mobile payment app, ‘Samsung Pay’ in India.
