Google made a striking announcement earlier this month regarding one of its most successful services – YouTube.
The tech and software giant announced that YouTube videos will be available for viewers in an offline mode. This means no more buffering and no more sudden picture quality drops – something that all of us have experienced thanks to an overloaded network or bad Internet connection. According to Google, the offline mode will allow users to view clips from the website even if they’re not connected to the internet. The service will be available in India in the next few weeks, but it’s not clear when the rest of the world will get to experience the offline mode.
The procedure will be extremely simple – the user will be able to download a certain video from YouTube and through the YouTube app (if he’s using Android, of course) and re-watch it later even if he/she doesn’t have any access to the web. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
