YouTube to Start Recommending Videos to Download

YouTube launched a feature of downloading videos to watch offline around five years back. By now in around 154 countries this feature is being used by many YouTube users. Some parts of the world have this feature for free while some of them have to get the Premium Subscription to avail the offline downloading service.

It now recommends viewers to download videos that might be of their interest based on the videos they have watched or already downloaded. This feature is available in the Downloads section of YouTube.
