India getting YouTube Go, a data hawk’s dream

Even as 4G technologies slowly creep into the massive subcontinent of India, sometimes, you’re just plain stuck. A decent connection here, a poor connection there, then it’s bye bye, birdie.

Perhaps, then, you may appreciate YouTube Go. It’s Google’s way of extending viewing and sharing capabilities beyond your cellular connection.

The YouTube part of YouTube Go is much like on the YouTube app for India, but users can also preview how much data each video is going to consume at various bitrates before choosing to either streaming it or downloading it for later use. Users can even share videos with friends through a Bluetooth transfer.

The app isn’t out yet and we don’t know if both Android and iOS will be supported, but you can apply to be notified when it launches.
