Google has now officially launched the YouTube Go beta app in India. The app was first announced back in September last year with a couple of exciting new features such as offline viewing, Bluetooth video-sharing, etc. The main objective of the app is to make sure that users don’t end up exhausting their data while watching the videos and hence the app also offers greater control over how much data you spend on watching the videos.

It was reported that the company was already testing the app since February in some regions and now it is finally available for all the users to download and take advantage of. As of now, the company is looking for users’ feedback to make the app work better as it is still in the beta stage. If you are going to use the app, then you can leave your feedbacks from within the app.

It is also expected that the full version of the app will also be available soon and you can sign up here in this link if in case you want to be notified when it goes live.

    I hope we don’t have to keep both the YouTube apps to work flawlessly! Either of one app should be sufficient. ūüôā
