How to easily download Youtube Videos on your Android smartphone
One of the biggest platforms for posting video content is Youtube. thousands of hours of video content is uploaded on Youtube every day and the quality is only getting better with time. The desire to download a video from Youtube has been one that stemmed from a few years ago. Content like tutorials, music videos or even short films is the kind of content that people want to have on their devices, available for viewing whenever required. The result was an influx of third-party apps that allowed you to download absolutely any video on Youtube and save it onto your device.
This led to many brands taking protective measures to safeguard their copyright content from illegal downloads. This turned out to be a problem as most of the high-quality content was now protected and could not be downloaded.
Youtube offered its own solution by introducing a download button within the app. This way, users could download the video they wanted within the app, and these downloads could be accessed offline as well, but only on the app.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to download Youtube videos, on the app, as well as use a third-party solution.
