Youtube has grown over the years, to become the largest video sharing platform on the internet today. With thousands of hours of content being uploaded on a daily basis, there is absolutely no end to the content, and the best part is, no matter what you want to watch, Youtube has the answer. A few years ago, there was a huge demand from people, to be able to download Youtube videos, so that it can be watched, even without an internet connection. The challenge for Youtube was to create a feature, that allowed people to legally download the videos they liked, for offline viewing, without stepping on the copyrights and the sheer hard work that people put in, to create their content.
While Youtube worked on this feature, a few third-party apps did come in to offer people this download ability, but ethically, it was and still is wrong. Thankfully, Youtube has now added a download feature, that allows you to download a video and it is stored within your Youtube account, where you can access and watch it when the internet connection is down, or even generally if you feel like watching it. This feature is available on both, the iOS and Android platforms, so no matter which device you own, you can follow this tutorial.
