YouTube Experiments with Video Downloads on Computers

YouTube is currently testing a video downloads feature on desktop browsers.

While mobile users have always had an option to download YouTube videos on their devices for later playback, desktop users did not have the same luxury. However, that is about to change: Android Police reports that YouTube is experimenting with video downloads for browsers on desktops. At the moment, this feature is only available to Premium subscribers.

Before this feature, desktop users had to rely on third-party tools to download YouTube videos. However, that constitutes piracy and the platform itself discourages it. With this development, people who need to download videos can do so without fearing that they’re doing something illegal.

The feature is available on Windows, MacOS, and ChromeOS. However, you need to have the latest versions of Chrome, Edge, or Opera to take advantage of it.

Finally, the early test will run till October 19 when YouTube will discontinue it.
