YouTube users in India will now enjoy offline capabilities to stream on YouTube without data connection. Google announced that users in India are allowed to save videos offline and watch them anywhere.
During an event, YouTube Executive Ceasar Sengupta mentioned that, this move was to serve users in India where a steady cellular data connection is not always available. He also mentioned that, YouTube is very popular in India because users love to watch the same videos over again. However, it would be nice if they can watch them again without paying for data.
Within a matter of weeks, Offline YouTube will be available in India. This is huge because users get to download a video and save it into the phone. However, this service will not be restricted to music videos. Although Google did not mention exactly when the offline services will be available in the country, nor has it stated whether the service will be available in other countries.
