YouTube has made the beta version of its ‘YouTube Go’ app available for download on the Google Play Store in India. Google in an event in September had announced that it will bring the “YouTube Go” app in India. YouTube Go comes with offline video viewing and sharing. It is aimed at users who have slow internet connection and are concerned about their data usage.
Key features of YouTube Go include:
- A home built for you: 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.
- Preview videos before you save or watch: On YouTube Go we’ll show you a preview of the video 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.
- Choose your resolution when saving or streaming videos: You can choose to save a video for offline 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: Share videos with friends and family nearby without using any data. You can send and receive videos instantly and offline with others using the YouTube Go app.
The new features would include making the home screen fresher and more relevant for users, allowing users to find videos easily. YouTube supports 8 Indian languages – Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu,Kannada, Gujarati and Malayalam.
