There are other options for High (720p), Medium (480p), and Low (144p). To save space, you can erase all local downloads from the browser cache with a single click.

    How to Download YouTube Videos on Desktop Browser

    YouTube will begin downloading the video when you click on it. Users can watch the download once it’s finished by going to the Downloads area of the hamburger menu on the left side of the screen, just below the “Watch Later” option. You can watch downloaded videos by going to or using the side navigation panel.

    The new feature will be available for testing until October 19; but YouTube is expected to roll it out to the public soon after. At the moment, Premium users of the YouTube app for Android and iOS can download videos for offline watching if the video is not private and the creator permits it.
