Rate this post

Tired of waiting for a video to get buffered? Unable to watch your favourite video due to buffering issue? Now, you need worry anymore as the most popular online video channel, YouTube has got a solution to fix your problem. Yes, Google Inc’s subsidiary, YouTube has recently come-up with its buffer-free offline video feature.


Moreover, with a viewership of over 60 million videos in a month, this buffer-free offline feature was much needed. The striking fact is that at first, the user will have to download a video of his/her choice which he/she can watch later on at any point of time for up to 48 hours without access to any internet connection (Wi-Fi or mobile data).  However, YouTube’s offline video viewing feature is confined only to YouTube’s mobile app users, thus enabling a lot of mobile data to be saved. But before this feature gets reflected on your mobile app, you need to update the application.


According to the reports, the number of YouTube viewership in India is likely to go up to 300 million by the end of this month, of which approximately 180-190 million users are projected to access internet via mobile devices.


The feature has been built for intermittent Internet access as is the case in India. “We have 60 million YouTube users here. Globally, it is also being simultaneously launched on Thursday in Indonesia and the Philippines too. We will consider taking it to other Asian countries too,’’ Ajay Vidyasagar, Regional Director, YouTube Partnerships, YouTube Asia-Pacific, said.

So, to keep up with the pace of providing buffer-free YouTube videos to the viewers, this feature was planned to be integrated.
