Almost all the apps now seems to be having a lite version. YouTube Go is a lightweight version of the YouTube App whose Beta launched back in this year April for India and September in Nigeria. Now, the app has moved from the Beta version to a stable version which is now available to the public via the Play Store in India and Indonesia.
YouTube Go is Google’s measure employed to ensure that even people who are unable to access a mobile data connection like others in terms of consumption as it is in more developed markets can watch YouTube more freely.
Google’s first mission was to make downloading of videos for offline viewing later available on the YouTube App and this is available in other regions, but a YouTube RED subscription is compulsory.
You can download videos from YouTube onto the storage of an Android device. A really nice feature is the ability to share offline YouTube videos with nearby friends via a combination of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct. Similar to how the recently (and accidentally) release Beta of Googles Files Go app finds nearby recipients to share files with.
The YouTube Go Beta provides two video resolutions options when it first launched: 144p and 360p. There are three resolution options in the public release of YouTube Go, which adds 480p in addition to 144p and 360p. We expect the app to gradually roll out to more countries. Otherwise, you can head to APK Mirror and side load the app as well.
