YouTube Go, the company's offline viewing app, expands to 130 countries

YouTube Go is officially rolling out to 130 countries across the world.

YouTube's decision to label all state-funded news videos comes after heavy criticism from the U.S. government and others about big tech companies' involvement in the spread of misinformation. YouTube also admits that this feature won't be flawless, and that users and publishers can provide feedback about the flags through YouTube's own feedback form.

The difference between the classic YouTube app and its Go version lies in offline viewing capabilities.

There are some regions where bandwidth consumption is always an issue.

While these notices will appear on any federally-funded channels (we can expect PBS videos to bear them, for example), they will be particularly useful for identifying the influence of foreign governments on YouTube.

US Market Indexes Lower for the Week
Apple fell 3.9 per cent as investors focused on the company's muted forecast rather than strong iPhone prices and its cash plans. Although the Shanghai Composite closed up 0.5 percent to 3,462.94 for the day, it suffered a 2.7 percent drop for the week.

Sharing videos to nearby friends does not consume any data, thanks to a direct device-to-device connection.
That app works offline, without a connection, and gives users control over mobile data consumption on a per-video basis.

"We've been working hard to build a YouTube app that works for you, with brand new features designed with your preferences, aspirations and needs in mind", Jy Akkad, YouTube's product manager, wrote in a blog post.

Shortly after the initial roll out in India, Google again extended the reach to 14 more countries.

YouTube offers another good news, indicating that it has expanded to Roku devices. Apparently, the success of the app at the early stages was encouraging enough. Further reports suggest that the new feature will bridge the gap between the standard YouTube app and the YouTube Go app as High Quality video download is available for the standard YouTube app.

The size of the YouTube Go app is less than 10 MB and Google made the YouTube Go app compatible with devices running Android 4.1 Jellybean and newer. Now, you have the ability to share the multiple videos and that too without consuming data. Given that there are restrictions on data usage in many developing countries, the app shows the exact amount of bandwidth that would be required for video downloads. This is flawless for those times when you don't have data but want to share a lovely video with someone.
