Google Announces New YouTube Application for Android

YouTube Go allows users in these markets with less reliable internet to download (overnight, mind you) and watch their favourite YouTube Channels and videos whilst on the go the next day. It gives you the option to stream selected videos immediately or to download them for offline viewing in standard and low-quality definition which is an extra option from the standard offline viewing feature. The app also has some social features for users who wish to share videos with their data-strapped fellows. YouTube Go makes things easier by only showing those videos which can be downloaded.

Interestingly, this app is available officially only in India right now and if you want to download it in other countries, you will need to sideload it!

Opening up the app, you will be asked to choose your preferred language among tonnes of Indian regional languages.

The move could affect millions of apps that don't spell out what they do with user data.

And combining the apps' product teams is another indication that running Google Play Music and YouTube Music separately doesn't make business sense. It also means they are no longer anxious about sharing video because of low data.

To help decide which resolution is best for download, the app will tell you how much storage space is now available on your phone, and how much each video will eat into this at different resolutions. This time around, YouTube is hoping to also emulate the same success by making a less consuming version of their app so it is accessed more widely by a large number of audiences who are unable to connect to their service. The other person doesn't have to download the video separately, thereby saving data. The company is positioning the service as a "faster, and lighter" version of its giant video hosting and streaming service. Video owners may allow or deny options to save or share videos.

As it stands both services exist in this space where Google isn't really competing with services like Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, and Amazon Prime Music.
