YouTube working on letting you download videos for offline enjoyment

Take that laughing baby video where ever you go!

Soon, YouTube is going to let you download videos from your mobile devices to watch offline. The company announced today that the feature would let users “add videos to their device to watch for a short period when an Internet connection is unavailable.”

Until now, downloading YouTube videos has been against the service’s terms and conditions, but the company has been relaxing the restriction. Last year the company began implementing pre-downloading of videos in its Android app, letting people finishing watch a video offline so long as they had started it online. We’ll have to wait to see exactly how this new offline feature works in comparison.

Updated reports are that videos can be stored offline on mobile devices for up to 48-hours starting next month.
