YouTube appears to be testing a new feature that would allow users to watch videos without connecting to the internet. YouTube’s new Smart Downloads feature can automatically download videos when an Android smartphone is connected to Wi-Fi.
Every week, the most recent Smart Downloads feature allows you to download up to 20 recommended videos. It appears to be accessible as an experimental function for a short period for a specific number of members. YouTube Music features a Smart Downloads function that allows users to download music automatically when they connect to a Wi-Fi network based on their previous listening habits.
According to sources, the Smart Downloads feature can automatically download 20 videos every week while the device is connected to Wi-Fi. Users can access offline content under the title Smart Downloads by visiting to the Downloads page from the Library tab. According to the publication, the new feature is presently being tested by users across Europe.
Users who do not have adequate phone storage to download all 20 videos for the week will supposedly be notified. The new functionality is also stated to be compatible with the most recent Android version. Premium customers can try out this function till February 14 as an experimental feature.
Premium members can now use the Smart Downloads function on YouTube Music. Users can download their favorite songs and videos to their mobile devices and listen to them offline.
When the Smart Downloads feature is turned on, the app will download content based on the user’s previous listening behavior when connected to Wi-Fi. To keep the downloads up to date, users should reconnect to the Internet at least once every 30 days.
