We are constantly connected to the internet, but at times, we could be traveling or getting stuck in areas where internet connectivity is not adequate or not available at all. For such situations, especially when there is something waiting, people require some saved content to view on their phone or laptop. To watch them offline, downloading clips from your favorite sitcom or shows that you can watch over and over again might be a smart move. There are many third-party solutions for downloading YouTube videos, but the company does not allow users to do so.
According to YouTube’s terms of service, users are restricted from “accessing, playing, downloading, distributing, transmitting, broadcasting, displaying, selling, licensing, altering, modifying” any content on YouTube. If a user does not follow this rule, it could lead to the termination of their YouTube account. However, YouTube Premium users can download videos offline.
YouTube Premium is the paid service of the Google-owned video platform that gives you a viewing experience, along with a couple of benefits, on the platform. For 129 rupees a month for a person and 189 rupees a month for a family, YouTube Premium allows users to: watch videos without ads, keep videos playing in the background while using other applications on their phone or tablet, download videos for use offline and watch any YouTube original movie or series. It also gives you access to YouTube Music Premium and Google Play Music at no additional cost.
How to download videos on YouTube Premium:
Step 1: Login to YouTube mobile app and play the video you want to download.
Step 2: Click the “Download” icon that will appear just below the video player.
Step 3: The platform will ask you to select the video quality.
Stage 4: The download will start and once it is complete, the “Download” icon will change to “Downloaded”.
You can find the downloaded videos in the Library or Account tabs. There is an important point to note that the person needs to connect to the internet once every 30 days or else they will not be able to access the downloaded videos. You may not be able to download some videos if their creator restricts them.
