YouTube users on Android in Europe are supposed to be able to test Smart Downloads.
YouTube is said to be developing a new function that allows users to watch videos without needing to be connected to the internet. When Android devices are connected to Wi-Fi, YouTube’s new Smart Downloads feature can automatically download videos. The most recent Smart Downloads feature allowed users to download up to 20 recommended videos every week. For a limited time, it is said to be offered as an experimental feature for a select group of members. YouTube Music has a similar Smart Downloads feature that downloads music automatically when connected to a Wi-Fi connection depending on the user’s previous listening history.
9to5Google was the first to report on the new functionality for YouTube for Android being tested. According to the article, while the gadget is linked to Wi-Fi, the Smart Downloads feature can automatically download 20 videos per week. By going to the Downloads page from the Library tab, users can access the offline content under the banner Smart Downloads. The new feature is currently being tested by users across Europe, according to the article. Gadgets 360 was unable to confirm the new YouTube app feature.
Users who do not have enough phone storage to download all 20 films for the week will be notified, according to reports. The new feature is also believed to operate with Android’s most recent version. This functionality is currently only available as an experiment.
YouTube is apparently bringing out Listening Controls for Premium subscribers on Android and iOS in a similar development. The new function allows users to have more control over their music while listening to it on the platform. It enables you to play, pause, fast forward, and rewind videos. It is currently available to users in the United States. By clicking the three-dot icon in the top right corner of the YouTube video, you may access the Listening Controls function.
