YouTube are bringing their on-the-go app to over 100 more countries around the world from today onwards.
YouTube launched their Go app in India last year, a new mobile app built from fresh to “unlock the power of YouTube for the next generation of users”. They went on to launch it in a further 14 nearby countries including Indonesia, Nigeria, and Thailand. Now it’s coming to loads more countries.
YouTube have announced that starting today they will be bringing the YouTube Go app to more than 130 countries around the world. Their app allows you to download YouTube videos to watch later so that if you’re going someone with little to no connectivity you can queue up some videos to watch from your device.
With YouTube you can:
- Videos that matter to you: The YouTube Go home screen features trending and popular videos in your area, so that you can find and discover videos that you and your community care about. The entire experience is available in your language, with videos that are relevant to you.
- Control over your experience: On YouTube Go, we’ll show you a video preview when you tap on a thumbnail, giving you a better sense of what the video is about before you decide if you want to watch it. You can then choose to download the video for viewing later or stream it now. And we also allow you to choose the amount of data you’d like to spend on that video.
- Share videos with friends nearby: With YouTube Go, you can share videos with friends and family nearby without using any data.
- Watch in high quality: In response to user feedback, we’ve given you even more control of your experience and added the ability to download, stream, and share videos in High Quality in addition to basic and standard quality resolutions.
- Discover fresh content you love: We heard that you wanted an even easier way to get the freshest videos recommended to you. Now, you can get new personalized content with a simple pull of the home screen. We also notify you when new videos are uploaded from the channels you love.
- Share more easily: We know you love sharing videos, so we made design changes to make it even easier to access the share nearby feature right from the home page. We also added a highly requested feature: allowing multiple videos to be shared at once.
YouTube say: “We’ve been working hard to build a YouTube app that works for you, with brand new features designed with your preferences, aspirations and needs in mind. We can’t wait to see what you can do with the power of YouTube in the palm of your hand.”
