YouTube apps will get Offline Viewing in November YouTube has revealed that its mobile apps will get a new Offline Viewing feature this November.
The feature was announced on the YouTube Creator's blog. It will allow YouTube users to store videos on their devices for a temporary period, so they will not need an Internet connection to view the videos.

"This upcoming feature will allow people to add videos to their device to watch for a short period when an Internet connection is unavailable," The YouTube Team announced.

"So your fans' ability to enjoy your videos no longer has to be interrupted by something as commonplace as a morning commute,"

This is part of an effort at YouTube to maximise the way users of its mobile apps enjoy videos and channels.

I'll believe this when I see this. Youtube has had Pre-fetch for a while now. It has never worked.
So, we'll just see. Will I be able to store a couple of hours of video for off-line viewing? Or will Youtube limit it to 5 minutes or some such bullcrap.

Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
