This week Google revealed that they are testing a new app called YouTube Go.
It has been designed to help people access the video-sharing service in places where internet connections may be lacking, starting with India where they will be testing the app before rolling it out further.
This new app will allow users to save videos for offline viewing purposes, with options to control the quality and file size of the video to make it clear how much data a download would use.
They have also built some sharing features into the app, allowing you to share videos to nearby users, without using and data.
Johanna Wright, the VP of product management at YouTube explained more:
“YouTube Go is a brand new app to help the next generation of users share and enjoy videos, YouTube Go was designed and built from the ground up with insights from India, in order to bring the power of video to mobile users in a way that is more conscious of their data and connectivity, while still being locally relevant and social.”
