Google Unveils Revolutionary YouTube Go: Offline Viewing Launched In India
Google has just shown to the world a new technological marvel, in the likes of its new YouTube Go. It is a new app that is made to improve the accessibility of the gargantuan video service to users around the world.
The new app is developed to cater specifically to Indian users and others who are living in places where internet connectivity is quite limited. What makes YouTube Go a must-have in everyone's gadgets is that it enables the user to save any video for offline viewing. It also gives the user an option as to the quality or file size that would be downloaded through the service.
The Future of YouTube
It is even more promising as it is capable of local sharing to another user without the need of having data. The newly unveiled YouTube Go app is inspired based on the Smart Offline Feature, which YouTube launched in India in the first quarter of 2016.
"YouTube Go is a brand new app to help the next generation of users share and enjoy videos. YouTube Go was designed and built from the ground up with insights from India, in order to bring the power of video to mobile users in a way that is more conscious of their data and connectivity, while still being locally relevant and social," said Johanna Wright, vice president for YouTube product management.
YouTube Goes Internet-less
YouTube Go made its debut during a Google event held in Delhi, India. It also unveiled an array of new products that would surely interest the Indian market. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google stated that "In an increasingly mobile-first world, India gives us early insights into the future of the Internet. Moreover, we learned the issues Indians may have with connectivity and data constraints can be universal."
Now, the Indian markets can now sign up for a YouTube Go test. However, there is still no official statement as to when the app will be launched.
