Youtube Now Supports Offline Playback in India
If you’ve had your eyes on the headlines in September, you may have heard of plans by Google to enable Youtube support offline playback of videos in India. Announced at the Android One event, this would work by introducing an extra button with a downward arrow as an icon under the video, which if pressed, will prompt you to select the video quality you want to download. And being in India, such functionality for offline support will come as a much welcomed feature, especially by those with sparse access to 3G and 4G.
Scheduled to go live within a few weeks, the release of the feature was pushed back for months until, well, now, because it seems like this feature is finally rolling out in India. The release will be in stages, so users in India should be receiving notifications for a Youtube update in the upcoming days. So to the folks waiting patiently, or justifiably restlessly, hold tight, because you’ll be able to watch offline Youtube videos very soon.
