Youtube Go Says Goodbye

There’s a lightweight version for everything kahit pa Facebook yan, Instagram, Google Chrome, and even Youtube. Most of these apps are installed in budget-entry level phones from the last 5 years (not including 2021) since they take up much less storage space.

One of these apps is Youtube Go. This app allows users to control how much data they spend on videos, and store it for offline use. It has neat features also found on the regular Youtube app, but it’s more visible to the user (in short, you see all the numbers you need, data-wise).

Sadly, Youtube Go will be going away. After being available for more than five years, the app will no longer be pre-installed or downloadable from the Play store starting August.

Okay pa ang Youtube Go – the app has over 500 million downloads, and has benefited a lot of people in terms of data saved. The app was meant to be an alternative for people who had lower data speeds and not-so-good devices.

Youtube says it has developed its app to work in most of the new phones released in the recent years. Because of hardware and software improvements in smartphones, a base or “lite” version of the Youtube app will no longer be needed.

Farewell, Youtube Go.
