After Netflix, its YouTube doing the rounds. As per a report by Android Police, YouTube is working on a cross device offline setting. This will allow members with premium subscription in managing video downloads easily. It somehow disappeared from some android versions.
As of now, the feature isn’t working. The option was available on both stable and beta version for select group of users.
According to the AP report, they actually already spotted it as part of an app tear-down back in 2018.
When users tapped on the option, they were shown a pop-up asking which device they want the app to be synced. The pop-up also features a window that says, “Allow downloading to this device.”
“We’re pretty confident that the feature should, in fact, sync downloads across multiple devices someday. But it’s also possible that Google scrapped that 2018 plan and just resurrected the name for some other functionality, like syncing your download quality and network preferences.” Android Police reported.
We are still in the hope of having such feature where we can keep our favorite videos intact.
