In last September’s Google for India event we announced YouTube Go, the YouTube app reimagined for the next generation of YouTube users. The company announced that the beta version of YouTube Go available for download on the Google Play Store in India.

Every aspect of YouTube Go was designed from the ground up, with four main principles in mind: It’s relatable, with fresh and relevant video recommendations tailored to user's preferences; the app 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 finally, it’s social, allowing you to share videos quickly and easily with friends nearby.

Key features of YouTube Go include:

  • A home built for you: YouTube Go home screen features trending and popular videos in your area, so that users can find and discover videos that you and your community care about.
  • Preview videos before you save or watch: On YouTube Go will show a preview of the video when users tap on a thumbnail, giving them a better sense of what the video is about before they decide if you want to watch it.
  • Choose your resolution when saving or streaming videos: Users can choose to save a video for offline viewing later or stream it now. And it also allows you to choose the amount of data you’d like to spend on that video.
  • Share videos with friends nearby: Share videos with friends and family nearby without using any data. You can send and receive videos instantly and offline with others using the YouTube Go app.
