There is a lot of demand to know how to download YouTube videos, and YouTube appears to be fully aware — and ready to actually allow it. The only problem with this legal way to download YouTube videos is that there are a few caveats.
This news comes from tipsters writing into Android Police, who revealed that certain members of YouTube Premium — the service offering an ad-free YouTube experience with offline downloads on mobile devices — have access to this new feature as a part of its Labs tests.
Unfortunately, not all YouTube Premium members have the feature, as we just checked, and it’s not there. That may be because the tipsters are reporting in from India and France, and YouTube may be testing this feature out in specific regions. Android Police claims, though, that “it appears to be available widely elsewhere”.
