YouTube Announces First Made-For-India YouTube Go App

YouTube has announced its first made-for-India YouTube Go app at the company's 2nd edition of Google for India event in New Delhi. The YouTube Go is basically a lite version of the YouTube app, that aims to consume fewer data, thus working better in areas with low connectivity. It is to be officially rolled out for the markets in early 2017. google however claims tat the YouTube Go is not a lite version of the YouTube app, but a revamped version of it, designed specifically for markets like India, where slow internet connection is a reality. One of the best features of the YouTube Go is that it can be used offline. It also offers search relatability, cuts down internet costs and enables video sharing. The app has been reworked from ground zero and stars an entirely different home screen and a new logo. It shows a simple interface with a total of only 10 videos by default. The users should get used to having two YouTube apps in their Google play store.
