play youtube on android offline

Sometimes we need to download YouTube videos on Android and save the videos for offline use so that you can watch YouTube without a Wi-Fi or a data connection, such as during a trip or in an area with poor network condition.

If you have a YouTube Premium subscription, you can download YouTube videos from the official YouTube app. To save a video from YouTube to your Android, launch the YouTube app, find the video you want to download, then tap Download below the video and choose quality options, such as 720p or 360p. The video will be saved as exo files which is encrypted. However, not every YouTube video is available for offline playback and not every country where the YouTube app is available can actually use it to save videos for offline use.

If you are not a YouTube Premium user or you want to watch and share the videos on other device or computer, now follow the 3 easy ways to download YouTube music, video to Android.
