Google Creates New Data Saving App Called YouTube Go

Google announced a new app called YouTube Go. It’s designed to help users in developing countries (with limited connectivity) to save videos for offline viewing.

According to YouTube’s website:

Introducing a brand new app to enjoy and share videos – YouTube Go. Built for the next generation of users to enjoy the power of YouTube. Maximize your fun without burning up your data.

It will also give options for the file quality and size and allow social sharing via devices without an Internet connection. Another interesting feature will be able to preview videos before deciding to watch.


The new app is coming out soon and will debut in India at first. Indian users, however, can sign up with a phone number and email to find out when the app launches.

Google announced the app at its event in Deli where the company is pushing new products aimed at the Indian market.

There is no word on when it will be coming to other markets, but this should help people save on data plans while still being able to enjoy more entertainment.

Are you looking forward to this new app? Leave a comment below and let us know.

    Long overdue for those of us in developing countries with access only to expensive monopolised internet access with appalling reliability. Time more such action was put to Bill Gates empty words of tryingbto reduce the ever widening digital gap between third and firstvworld countries. Microsoft are currently tail-end Charlies in that race with Windows 10, Office 365 and their data-heavy updates essentially telling the third world “you best stay where you are”.
