    "This is hands down the best youtube downloader I've ever tried, and trust me when I say I've tried a lot. TubeMate is legit, unlike the other apps who pretend to be youtube downloaders but really aren't. Plus it's really simple to use, it even lets you choose the video resolution 💯💯💯"

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the offline feature of YouTube launched back in 2014? It works on the app for mobile devices such as Android and iOS only. So it definitely won't work on a browser. The premise of the feature is to download videos off YouTube to view at a later time. YouTube users can also download the videos based on their preferred resolution. The higher the resolution, the more space it takes up within the app. The biggest perk of offline viewing is that you can play videos anywhere without WiFi. This is especially handy for those who depend on data or have no internet connection. Despite that, not all videos on YouTube are available for offline download. One main reason some videos aren't available is subject to copyright.

You can notice that official music videos often don't come with the offline download icon. This is where YouTube video downloaders for Android come in handy. Especially if you want to play your favorite videos without worrying about your WiFi. Aside from watching videos, it's also possible to rip music from YouTube. But you have to be cautious in using YouTube-to-MP3 converters for music videos and such. If you want to keep things legal, the offline view has its advantages. It's available in over a hundred countries. Another noticeable feature of the offline feature is that it can only keep the videos for 48 hours. Unless you have a stable internet connection every now and then. Whatever option you opt for, there are ways to download YouTube videos for offline usage.

    "I'm not a big fan of spending a lot of money on data so this app is a godsend for me. I download all my favorite songs so I don't have to stream everytime I want to listen to them. This app is great because it doesn't destroy the sound quality. The user interface could use some improvements though"
