Offline video playback coming soon to YouTube's mobile app

YouTube will soon allow mobile users to watch videos while offline (NASDAQ:GOOG)

| Apps News | Posted: Sep 19, 2013 2:02 am

Earlier this week, YouTube announced that it plans to introduce a new feature in November that will add offline viewing to any videos that users add to their watch later list on their mobile device. Once downloaded to your device, the videos will be viewable for 48 hours, after which they will have to be re-downloaded.

YouTube did not specifically state how the service will work or if the feature would be exclusive to Android, or if it will be featured on the iOS version of the app as well. Either way, I feel that this is an excellent idea and I cannot wait to start downloading movies to watch while on long trips with spotty Internet service.
