In the early days of YouTube, one had to rely on questionable software from third-party developers to download content off of YouTube. Thankfully, YouTube allowed users to download videos on to their devices, for offline viewing. Initially, the list of countries with support for YouTube offline viewing and downloading used to be only 16 (India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Yemen, Egypt, and ten others). Now 109 countries have been added for a total of 125. The development comes with Google pushing Youtube Go, a version of the popular video streaming app for their Android Go fork. Here’s a complete list:

If you live in one of these countries, the option has most likely rolled out to you already and you’ve probably noticed the 4th Download button on any video. If not, check back later. The weird part is that YouTube is banned in some of the countries listed above, so I’m not entirely sure why Google supported those regions when it could include others that had access to YouTube.
