New Delhi: Google's video-hosting platform YouTube has released the stable version of YouTube Go app in India.
With YouTube Go, users can share videos with friends and family nearby without using any data.
The beta version of the app was released on Play Store in India this April.
The app provides a fresh and relevant video recommendation tailored to ones preferences. It is designed to be offline first and improve the experience of watching videos on a slower network.
"It gives you more control over data usage, by providing choice and transparency into the amount of data spent on streaming or saving videos, and it's social, allowing you to share videos quickly and easily with friends nearby," a YouTube blog post had said.
YouTube Go home screen features trending and popular videos in an area, so that a user can find and discover videos that his/her community cares about.
On YouTube Go, a user can see a preview of the video when he/she taps on a thumbnail, giving a better sense of what the video is about.
A user can also choose to save a video for offline viewing later.
With a tagline of "Mazze Udao, Data Nahi", YouTube Go now allows a user to preview and choose the size of the video.
