2. Once you have updated the Youtube app, next time when you open the app it will tell you that the support for offline viewing feature has been added.


3. Now while watching videos online you will see an extra button to download videos.

4. Clicking the button will ask you to choose the video resolution you want your video to be downloaded in. Currently you can download videos in 360P and 720P(HD) versions, the 1080P(Full HD) option is not available yet.
