I have lost count of the amount of times, when trying to watch videos on YouTube that the signal on my WiFi drops and I receive very choppy footage or the video becomes unplayable due to a bad internet connection! Fortunately after running a few tasks and couple of tricks, I now have great signals throughout my house. Before implementing my fixes, I used to have to download the videos I wanted, to watch later for my offline pleasure. I am sorry to say, that isn’t the case with everyone.
If you are living in India, it appears as though in the next few weeks, Google will be permitting users in India to save their videos for watching offline at a later date.
This is superb news if there are certain videos, which you want to watch over and over again or you want to watch later, but you don’t want to have to stream it again. This feature is also very useful for those who are travelling and would like some entertainment. There is now no need to be concerned about excessive roaming charges or a lack of Internet connectivity.
YouTube executive Ceasar Sengupta said, “Within the coming few weeks, much of YouTube will be available offline in India. This is huge, and our users will really, really like this. You can download a video once, save it to your phone, and watch it again and again.”
Unlike YouTube Music Key, which seems to be limited to music videos, it also appears that there does not seem to be a restriction to the type of video that you may save for offline viewing. There is no information on whether Google will be bringing this feature to other global markets.
