Poor internet connection is a real thing in many places around the world. Scratch that; poor and expensive data is a real thing in many parts of the world. This is a huge impediment to web usage, and more so to online video. Google has made it possible for YouTube users to watch videos on poor internet connection.
YouTube Go: Watch videos on poor internet connection
YouTube Go is what Google has come up with. In addition to improve the experience of watching videos on a poor internet connection, the app also allows videos to be downloaded for watching offline. This is great for YouTube users that love to watch videos on repeat.
In addition, it gives you more control over data usage, by providing choice and transparency into the amount of data spent on streaming or saving videos. Nice.
Lastly, YouTube Go lets you share videos with anyone nearby without using any data. You can send and receive videos instantly and offline with others using the YouTube Go app. We are guessing that works similar to how Xender works. That is amazing value.
The beta version of YouTube Go is available for download on the Google Play Store in India. Google says the app is for India. There is no word on possible availability in other countries at a later date. Everyone is making stuff for India these days. But don’t worry. We are sure that if you run a search for the APK file of the app, you will find it on one of the trusted download sites.
