Easiest Way to Download YouTube Videos on Android Smartphone

Admit it, you love YouTube. We all do. Movie trailers, music videos, tutorials, launches, interesting channels, food recipes, interesting tips, YouTube has got it all.

No doubt, YouTube is full of interesting features. You can create playlists, subscribe to interesting channels, save videos for Watch Later, upvote or downvote videos, leave comments and feedbacks, etc. However, there is one feature that is missing – Download button.

Yes, it is a huge pain that YouTube does not provide downloading options in the videos. Well, not only YouTube but other video sharing platforms like Daily Motion, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. none of them provides a download button.

YouTube on Phone

So, when we like a particular video either we have to bookmark it and load it again and again when we are trying to watch later or we have to rely on third-party services and websites to download videos from different portals. Most of the times, these third-party services are not safe. They contain spammy ads or worse you might end up downloading a virus and corrupting your device. Any reliable way to download YouTube videos directly on our devices?

I am glad you asked. I found this great app called SnapTube that lets you download videos directly from all the popular video sites be it YouTube, Daily Motion, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. You can download all of these videos right on your smartphone. There are a lot of features encapsulated in SnapTube that we will explore today.

Snaptube supporting sites

Downloading videos from online video sharing sites is not going to be any easier than this. One app to download any video directly on your phone. The best part is that it is totally free. You can download an unlimited number of videos without paying a penny. Let’s see what all SnapTube can do.

Download YouTube Videos

Downloading videos from YouTube just takes a few easy steps. The user does not need to have any special technical skills.

Open YouTube in SnapTube and search your favorite video.

Now, you see that red-colored circular downloading button at the bottom, click on it. SnapTube will provide download options in many different formats and qualities. You can select any one of them as you like and start downloading the video.

formats

It will take just a few seconds to download the video. You don’t have to wait for the download to complete. Let it run in the background and search more videos that you would like to download. SnapTube allows you to download multiple videos simultaneously.

SnapTube enables users to download the whole playlist at once. Using its batch downloading feature you can download YouTube playlists at once. Well, not only from YouTube but you can download audio and videos in batches from multiple sites.

SnapTube YouTube conversion

You will find all your downloaded files in the download section. The steps are same for Facebook, Twitter, Daily Motion, Instagram and other portals.

YouTube to MP3

Another highly needed feature. Many times we like the audio of a video and would like to download only the audio part from that video.

SnapTube lets you download Mp3 from YouTube videos with great ease so, you don’t have to look for a separate service for YouTube to Mp3 conversion. The steps are again the same. Just browse to your favorite video, click on the download button and in the next step select the Mp3 format to download only the music part of that video.

The audio file will be downloaded in seconds. You can find it in the download section.

Download Quality

SnapTube is available for free but it doesn’t mean that you will have to compromise on the video or audio quality. Download the videos in HD, Full HD, Ulta HD or any other format and there would be 0% loss in the quality.

You can also play the downloaded video or audio using the SnapTube’s built-in player or your phone’s video player.

SnapTube is a boon for all those who love watching and downloading interesting videos and music. It is available for free, provides high quality and speed for downloads and is very easy to use. You can download numerous videos and audios simultaneously and get them all at one place. But, don’t take my word for it, try this free app yourself and share your experience with us.
