YouTube Go is the new India-specific app from Google, which was announced at the second Google for India event that took place yesterday. Google’s YouTube Go app will be launched in India first, and users will have to sign up for it on the youtubego.com/signup website to get the app. Users can leave their mobile number or email id to sign up for this, which hints the sign-in could also be via the mobile phone number, instead of requiring a Google account like the main YouTube app.
YouTube Go app is all about helping users in India save on data, share and save videos easily. Google says “YouTube Go is result of extensive research done across 15 cities in India by teams of engineers, designers, and researchers collecting ideas and testing prototypes with hundreds of people.”
The app will rolled out to more testers in the coming weeks, and Google will also use their feedback. The company says it will improve the product more before it finally launches YouTube Go.
