We all have been there where we are watching random YouTube videos and suddenly one of them catches our attention and due to lack of any tool, we are unable to download it on our phone. Well, there are a number of ways to download YouTube videos on Android phones so you can enjoy your favorites anywhere anytime.
Following are the most popular, easy, and reliable ways you can download youtube videos on your Android phone.
Download using the YouTube app
The first and foremost is the ability to download videos using YouTube’s own app. Earlier this option was only available to those with a YouTube Premium subscription but now anyone can download videos using the Youtube app.
As facilitating as it may sound, it has a catch. The videos downloaded via this method are not saved on your device which means you are only able to access those videos in the library of your YouTube app.
To download via the app, just open your desired video and click on the download button between the share and the save button below the video.
