You can now download videos to watch later
If you’ve always wanted to watch the latest episode of say, your favorite tech podcast on your mobile device but don’t have fast, reliable mobile data during your commute, you’ll be happy to know that YouTube is currently beta testing a new offline playback feature for Android devices. The PH is apparently one of the three countries where the feature is being tested in, with the other two being India and Indonesia.
Before you go and download all the things, know that there’s some pretty serious caveats in YouTube’s new feature. For one, only content withint the region can be downloaded to be viewed later, which means anything in the US or other countries cannot be downloaded. You’ll also have only 48 hours to watch the downloaded video of choice, so you’re not keeping it forever.
