Google says that the YouTube Go is designed for spotty Internet connections, and gives you more control over data usage, by providing choice and transparency into the amount of data spent on streaming or saving videos. It also allows you to quickly share the videos with friends nearby.
YouTube Go features includes:
- A home built for you: YouTube Go home screen features trending and popular videos in your area, so that you can find and discover videos that you and your community care about.
- Preview videos before you save or watch: On YouTube Go we’ll show you a preview of the video when you tap on a thumbnail, giving you a better sense of what the video is about before you decide if you want to watch it.
- Choose your resolution when saving or streaming videos: You can choose to save a video for offline viewing later or stream it now. And we also allow 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.
Users in India can download the YouTube Go beta from the Google Play Store starting today. Google also plans to hold several events in Udaipur over the upcoming weeks to talk more about this new YouTube Application.
