Announced at a Google Event in Delhi, India, Google announced a new service for watching YouTube videos offline simply branded YouTube Go.
The app was clearly launched in India due to the countries more expensive mobile climate, and how it’s not cheap to have massive packs of Data to watch videos on the go. Whilst it’s unclear both how the service will do, as it doesn’t really offer anything new which can’t be done elsewhere, or when it will launch, you can go the YouTube Go signup page and be notified when it’s available. The application is expected to run on both iOS and Android phone and tablets.
YouTube product management VP Johanna Wright said in a statement:
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.
