Google confirms merging YouTube & Play Music teams for 'best possible product'

Certificates

"YouTube Go is a brand new app to help the next generation of users share and enjoy videos", YouTube product management VP Johanna Wright says in a statement, per The Verge. No internet is used here and the videos can be easily shared across multiple devices without the other party needing to download it. Till then, what do you think about this new YouTube Go app?

However, in Android Marshmallow and above, users can turn off permissions for individual apps, but that still leaves unclear how an app uses some of this data.

When you tap on video, a pop window will open showing a preview of the video, followed by option to download the video in Basic quality and Standard quality. We bring to you 10 such web apps that you can start using right now. The app weighs less than 10MB to download and is a bare-bone version of the original app, maintaining certain features and adding one or two more interesting ones.

Youtube Go v 0.26.67 comes with an install size of 6.77 MB, and app size of 8.5 MB and runs on Android Jellybean 4.1 and above. The download will resume automatically once the phone has internet access.

Google's multiple music platforms - Google Play Music, YouTube, YouTube Music, YouTube Red - have always presented a confusing and even competing mix, portions of which have failed to gain much traction.

Once you've downloaded a video, YouTube Go will let you share it with friends over Bluetooth. It allows users to send and receive their saved videos with other users in their vicinity. At $9.99 a month, it gives users ad-free access to YouTube music and video, and the ability to play content offline and in the background while the screen is off or when running another app.

Previously available in a very limited private testing phase, YouTube Go is now in open beta. The home feed is based on the user's subscriptions and viewing history. There is no word on the future of the two apps as yet but Google will likely push for the creation of a unified product experience.
