Months ago, Tellforceblog talked about YouTube Go and how to download it. Then, the app was available for download only in India. Now, Google has officially announced the availability of YouTube Go in Nigeria.
How Does YouTube Go Works?
YouTube Go allows you to preview videos in order to decide what to watch or download. As a user, you can also select the video quality that their internet connection can handle better and proceed to save the video for offline veiwing. This helps you in managing the available internet connections and data consumption properly and better.
Users of YouTube Go can also share videos with family and friends without using data. Google has announced that the YouTube Go app has now been thrown open so the anyone in Nigeria can now download it from the Google Play Store.
Why YouTube Go For Nigerians?
Google has further proved that they are working hard to make products that are tailored to Nigerians’ specific needs. The cost and quality of internet access in Nigeria has been a huge bottleneck in the adoption of internet-dependent mobile apps and services.
While the latest 4G LTE networks are bringing faster mobile internet access to the country, most mobile users still find themselves stuck on 2G and 3G data plans.
Before developing YouTube Go, the YouTube team spent thousands of hours gathering information, conducting interviews, doing testing, and refining the product. The result is YouTube Go, an entirely new YouTube app that is designed to be offline first.
YouTube Go Mobile App Still In Testing Stage
The YouTube app is still in development and may be unstable at the time of going to press. There is a statement to this effect in the Android market app, Play Store. Being in development means that Google is using feedback from usage to improve the YouTube Go mobile app.
When you install YouTube Go and launch it, the mobile app will request for your mobile number in order to be able to use it.
