Google has officially introduced support for offline video playback on the YouTube app for Android. This feature will be available only in India for the time being, but the rest of the world should be able to see it in the coming weeks as well. Google made the news official on the eve of the Android One announcement in New Delhi earlier today. A feature like this will save on bandwidth and allow users to download videos locally on the YouTube app over WiFi for later viewing.
But bear in mind that these videos cannot be saved onto your device in order to avoid piracy and duplication. Also, the videos will most likely be removed from the library after a few days have elapsed. Google was revealed to be bringing support for offline video playback on YouTube a while ago, so its existence is no surprise to us.
The feature will reportedly make its way to the YouTube app in the coming weeks, so make sure you’re on the lookout for an update.
