New Delhi. YouTube is testing a new service that allows users to download videos to their desktop web browser. This latest service is currently made available as an experimental feature only for premium users. YouTube currently allows paid users on Android and iOS to download content for offline viewing. This service will only support computers with the latest versions of Chrome, Edge or Opera browsers. Customers who want to use this feature can visit YouTube’s Experimental New Features page. Here is a test listing for premium subscribers. While watching the video, eligible users will be able to see the option to download the video along with the like and share buttons. To ensure the quality of the video, users can choose the maximum Full HD (1080p) to download the video. This can be selected by going to the Settings menu. It also has High (720p), Medium (480p), and Low (144p) quality available. All local downloads can be removed from the browser cache with just one click to free up space. After choosing your desired quality and clicking on it, YouTube will start downloading the video. Once the download is complete, users see the option of Watch Later. It is made available from the hamburger menu on the left side. Downloaded videos can be replayed from youtube.com/feed/downloads or via the side navigation panel. This new service will be available for testing by October 19, but YouTube may launch it officially soon. Currently, the YouTube app for Android and iOS allows premium users to download videos for offline viewing. But the condition is that the video should not be private and the producer allows it.
