Access YouTube videos offline on PC
As on a mobile phone, this function will allow you download youtube videos In a controlled environment to watch later, without an internet connection. We may be using it less on PC, but the choice also goes through an app, the PWA web app. By clicking on the Download button below a video, YouTube offers us to install the app in question.
PWAs have their own local storage system on the computer. This is what YouTube will use to download videos.
Then there is a new Downloads section to display all downloaded videos at the top of the page. Users of this function on a mobile phone will not feel confused.
Function parameters are present, even if we do not find many options. We can still choose the video quality for downloads and the ability to delete all video downloads in one click.
If we go back to the trials page, this test will run until October 19th. After this date, we imagine Google will decide whether or not to continue this functionality.
