YouTube Upgrade For Android Will Soon Let You Watch Videos Offline
Jun 28, 2012 15:13
One of the new perks of switching to Google IO is this neat update for the Android version of YouTube. According to Mashable, Android users can soon watch their favourite videos while offline.
The way this works is that whenever you’re plugged in and on Wi-fi, your phone will start automatically downloading videos that it think you might want to watch based on your past browsing habits and the channels you're subscribed to. To access the downloaded videos, just click on the small
green arrow in the corner. You can also tell YouTube to only download
videos you’ve saved to your “watch it later” list.
This is especially great news for those on the go as it means they can
still watch their favourite videos when outside their mobile coverage
zone or offline. The company says it’s currently working on bringing the same experience across other non-Android platforms although they haven't exactly given a specific date.
