Google teases YouTube offline playback one more time

Advertisement

As popular as YouTube is today, there are some caveats to the way the service works. You can only watch videos while online, these require chunks of data, and at times when data plans aren’t cheap nor unlimited, it would be great to download a couple of videos over WiFi before hitting the road. Google has offered to bring this service offline to its YouTube application for a while now, but even today, all we get is more teasers.

Google has recently updated its YouTube application for Android on the Google Play Store, and if you look closely, you’ll notice that the screenshots provided tease to an offline mode being available. Sadly the module isn’t available after you update the application, and options for it aren’t available in settings. Google didn’t promise a specific time to bring this feature to life, and it could just be that the company is still figuring out how to sell you ads while you keep an offline video.

There are no major Google announcements that we know about in the next coming weeks. Google might just launch this feature silently, but if you do notice anything different on your app, please let us know in the comments.
