YouTube Downloader for Android has been the go-to option of many advanced Android users for quite some time now. This capable YouTube download app supports remote downloads to another PC via SSH, multi-threaded download, audio extraction and conversion, and much more.

Coming up next, we have YouTube Now. YouTube Now isn’t an official tool put on by YouTube Now; however, it’s one of the best tools that you can use to download YouTube videos for offline viewing later. Head over to YouTube Now, and you can download full videos straight to your phone.

Not only that, but you can choose what to download it in. You can choose the traditional mp4 video format, or you can download content as an mp3 or audio file.

It simple to use — simply grab a URL from YouTube, insert it into the box in YouTube Now, and then press the button that says “SEARCH”. From there, you should be able to choose the video, and then also choose a file format to download it in.

It obviously doesn’t work with live video, but if a live video is posted on YouTube, you can grab the URL and download it for viewing at a later time.
