General News Google brings videos offline for India with YouTube Go app
Advertisement
#1
Google has announced a new YouTube app built from scratch that gives users more control over how much data is consumed while watching or saving a particular video. YouTube Go will be rolled out in the coming months, and Google is asking users to sign up to be among the first to get the app when it becomes available. Google has built the app with a particular focus on the Indian audience and has also come up with a tagline — “A b Mazze udao, data nahin !”

“YouTube Go is designed with four concepts in mind. [...] The app is designed to be offline first and work even when there’s low or no connectivity. It’s also cost-effective, providing transparency and reducing data usage. And finally, it’s a social experience, connecting you with the people and content you care about,” Johanna Wright, VP of Product Management, YouTube explains the idea behind the YouTube Go app. Following are some of the notable features of the new app.

The YouTube app already offers users the ability to save videos offline to watch them later, even if there is no internet connection. The idea was to help users save precious mobile data by saving videos on Wi-Fi and then watch it later. YouTube Go app improves this feature by letting users choose the resolution in which they want to watch or save the video, and also inform how much data will be consumed on different resolutions. If you are not sure what to expect from the video, the app will now give you a short preview of the entire video. Clicking on a video thumbnail will trigger the quick preview feature.

Google is also improving how users discover new videos and share their experience with friends and family. The home screen of the app has been tweaked to show the trending and popular videos in the user’s location. Users will also be able to send and receive videos with friends and family without the need for an internet connection via Bluetooth. Google will be rolling out the YouTube Go app in India in the coming few months. It has also revealed that the app will support up to 10 Indic languages.
