How to Download YouTube Videos on Android Phone

YouTube has a huge database of interesting videos on latest songs, movie trailers, funny clips, pranks, news, academic topics, how-to tutorials, etc. Many of these videos are so amazing that we want to watch them again and again but each time we reload a video, it consumes bandwidth. And, if you’re on expensive mobile data, you can’t spend your bandwidth such carelessly. It will also be a pain if you watch out videos on a slow internet connection.

So, people try to download the desired YouTube video for offline viewing. YouTube’s official app now provides the feature to “save video offline” which is similar but not same to downloading a video. It consumes full bandwidth while saving a video offline inside your YouTube app but the video is only available to play via YouTube app so, you can’t browse it in your phone’s gallery to play using any other video player or share it with friends. Even sometimes, these videos don’t play and you need to download them again.

Downloading YouTube videos on the Android phone used to be a tricky task because you were either needed to depend on unreliable YouTube offline videos feature or use any third-party YouTube video downloader site by visiting them through your Android web browser, paste link of desired YouTube video there and grab its direct download link but thanks to SnapTube, which has solved the problem of download YouTube video on mobile phone permanently for all of us.
