How to watch YouTube videos even when you’re offline

Limited or intermittent Internet connectivity is the top reason why you can’t truly enjoy watching YouTube videos especially on your smartphone or tablet. For sure, you have experienced getting pissed off as a video you are watching suddenly stops because of weak online connection.

That setback is now a thing of the past. Believe it or not, it is now possible to watch YouTube videos even if you are offline. The popular videosharing site has rolled out YouTube Offline, a new feature in the YouTube app for Android and iOS users.

YouTube Offline allows users to take videos offline while they are on WiFi or data plan. Once offline, selected videos would be made accessible to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere, even if there is low connectivity or no Internet connection at all. You can finally bid that annoying buffering wheel farewell!

How to make it work? On your updated YouTube app, open a video and look for the special icon (a circle with an arrow pointing down ) located at the lower right side of the screen, just below the video title. Tap the offline icon once to instantly save your chosen video offline. When you go offline, you can access the videos you have selected. It is as simple as that!

If you want to test how this new and exciting feature really works, you may check out the following popular YouTube videos that you can watch through YouTube Offline:
