Downloading YouTube videos on the phone was always simple. You need to have YouTube Premium, and download videos that are available for downloading. These videos are stored on the YouTube application itself and not separately in your phone’s storage. These videos are available on your phone as long are you reconnect to the internet every 30 days or so.

This is the same feature YouTube is working on for its browser. TechCrunch was informed by YouTube that “the viewer gains access to a cached version of the video — it’s like downloading a Netflix show to watch offline while you’re on a plane. Users can view their downloaded videos by navigating to the YouTube website while they’re offline. Then, they will see text showing that they are offline, which will take them to a new page showing the videos they’ve downloaded.”

All you need to do is click on the download button, and the video will be downloaded and stored on your browser. You can access these videos at youtube.com/feed/downloads. It will work on the latest version of all major browsers like Chrome, Edge, Safari, etc.

You can only download videos up to 1080p resolution. The download feature will be available from today up to the 19th of October as an experiment. If the test is successful, it might become a permanent YouTube Premium feature.
