When YouTube introduced ‘Add to Offline’ feature in the mobile app, people were still downloading YouTube videos using third-party websites and software. But now, you can watch and share videos with friends without internet connectivity.
There are many reasons why people don’t like the offline feature, but the one problem I usually face is unable to share the offline video. This problem is sorted out with the help of YouTube Go app. Google has introduced several apps based on YouTube such as YouTube music, YouTube for Android TV, YouTube Gaming, YouTube for Google TV, YouTube VR and now YouTube Go.
The app is specially made for users who burns lots of data by streaming the same video again and again. On both desktop and mobile app, YouTube selects video quality depending on your Internet speed. If you use 4G LTE most of the time, then HD videos will burn your expensive data.
In YouTube Go app, when you click on a video, it will ask you in which quality the video should be played or saved. You saved videos can be shared with friends through YouTube Go app. Here is how to share the saved videos:
- Install and open the YouTube Go app on your smartphone.
- Click and Save a video.
- Go to ‘Saved’ tab, click Send and tell your friend to click the Receive button in their YouTube Go app.
- Select a video you want to send.
- Tell the receiver to connect with your device, and then the sender will be select the receiver’s device.
- The video will now transfer in seconds.
The YouTube Go app will send and receive videos over Wi-Fi just like SHAREit, it means the receiver will receive the video very faster. As you know some kind of videos cannot be taken offline, so those videos will not be shared with YouTube Go app.
If the app is currently not available on Google Play, you can download the YouTube Go APK from APKMirror.
