However, in case you are hearing or reading about YouTube Go for the first time - it's an app from Google in which you can stream your favorite music video or song on YouTube without giving a glitch about your data. With YouTube Go app it's reduces the amount of data you have to burn just to watch that video. It's targeted at users with poor network coverage and those who want to conserve data while streaming videos on YouTube. In other words, YouTube Go is similar to Facebook lite, Messenger lite and LinkedIn Lite. The above apps consumes less data.

YouTube Go has been designed to take into account the challenges faced by YouTube users in countries like Nigeria, such as data cost and connectivity. With YouTube Go, we are making it possible for everyone in Nigeria to be able to discover videos that they love, regardless of their network status or data consumption preferences.”
With more Nigerians coming online every year, and most of them only using their mobiles for internet access, we are working hard to make products that are tailored to Nigerians’ specific needs.

“You can save videos for offline watching, and can choose what resolution video to save – basic quality or standard quality – giving you better control over how you use your precious data.”, he added.

The YouTube Go is built to meet the online needs of the growing youth population. Apart from saving your data, there are other amazing YouTube Go features you will like. It features a home screen that shows both personalized recommendations as well as trending and popular videos nearby, allowing users to see the latest content that the people around are watching, upfront. It offers a ‘preview video’ function (a feature that is only available on PC) to make it easier to decide what to watch or download.

YouTube Go also offers easy video downloading, phone-number sign-in, effortless searching, and more effective ways to control data usage. Instead of streaming a video of 12.5MB, with YouTube Go you can stream that same video with just 1.5MB. Amazing right? You can download it from the link above.

  7. YouTube Go allows users with very slow
    internet connectivity to
    download YouTube videos,
    which they could watch offline, and at their convenient time.
    It also allows users to get ‘super
    low bandwidth’preview of
    videos they intend to download.
    This helps a user to manage
    data. It tells users how much
    data they have left before
    downloading videos and helps
    users save data by adjusting the
    quality of downloads, as well. It
    even allows users share videos
    with people within certain
    perimeters without internet
