Readers must note that these videos remain on the app as long as the device has an internet connection for 29 days. However, the downloaded videos can be played offline for a continuous period of up to 48 hours. After that, you will need to reconnect your device to a mobile or Wi-Fi network after every 48 hours so that the app can check in case there is a change in the video or its availability for offline viewing remains. Therefore, if a video is no longer available for offline playback, it will be removed from your device during the next sync. These videos can be downloaded via both Wi-Fi and mobile data. Also, not all videos on YouTube are available for offline viewing.
For those who are short on internal storage, these downloaded videos can be saved to the SD card also. For that you will have to go to your profile> Settings> Downloads. Toggle on the option of ‘Use SD card’ (Save videos to the SD card).
