The Application comes with the tag line “Ab Mazze Udao, Data Nahi!!” With light size of only 8.5 MB this application can download video. While after saving those video you can share that video with other but the thing is both need to have the application installed. YouTube Go application gives you 2 option to save the video, basic (~240p) and standard (~480p). With these now you can play same video whenever you want without using data.


Its light weight and video saving and sharing option makes it different from the standard YouTube application that is heavy, give lags on some phone (phone with less than 1 GB RAM) and do not share video. After making this dedicated application for Indian Internet Network, Do India really need to work on its Internet Speed and Connection. At least India should try to cone in top 20. Small countries like Indonesia, Thailand are having double of our average speed and if some people think these country have less area then what about Russia, with not that good economy than India they are still having 17 Mbps of internet speed.
