Smart Download is a new YouTube feature that will allow users to view their favorite content while saving on data consumption

14 January 2022

As referenced by 9to5Google Big G is about to introduce on the proprietary application YouTube a functionality already present on the application YouTube Music , useful for those who have a connection with limited data or found in areas with poor coverage. This is the Smart Download and you need to download videos from the platform.

Currently, those with limited mobile data can go to Settings> Data Saver and activate the saving mode which reduces the quality of the videos, uses only the WiFi and mutes the audio of the feeds. Subscribers to YouTube’s Premium service, on the other hand, can start testing the new feature while waiting for the official update to arrive. This way, you will be able to continue watching the videos you like even when you are away from home and do not have the proper connection. The Premium membership can be activated via the path Settings> Switch to YouTube Premium and there is a free trial month.
