YouTube Go app expands to 130 countries globally

02 February 2018 4

YouTube Go is a part of Google’s effort to deliver the same information to the people in developing countries while using a lot less data. The concept of the lightweight app is providing an alternative to the otherwise data-hungry apps that offer many core functionalities while consuming more data. Today, the company announced that the YouTube Go is now expanding to over 130 countries worldwide. The list of new countries include the ones in Central and South America, the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean, Asia, and elsewhere.

YouTube Go allows the users to download videos for offline viewing, which the users can then share locally with friends over a direct device-to-device connection without using up more data. The app was first launched in beta in India last year. It was then rolled out to testing in 14 countries and now has expanded to even more. The new update to the app also brings in features like including an option to stream and download videos in higher quality, a new personalized stream of content, and the ability to share multiple videos at once. You can download the app from the link below.

I am in India and I just checked the details on Play Store. It says the app is compatible with my device. And importantly, the message reads, "This is an unreleased app. It may be unstable." So I'm backing off for now.
