YouTube's offline feature allows Android and iOS users to save YouTube videos for later consumption on their device. These videos can be downloaded through mobile data or Wi-Fi networks. This feature is ad-supported, however, so you have to sit through an advertisement before going to your video.

Not every video is available

It's worth noting that not every video is available to watch offline. Very popular YouTube content of India can be downloaded, but you can watch some videos that are not available to download.

Offline availability

Any video downloaded can only be played offline for 48 hours. After this, you will have to search for a working internet connection with the YouTube app and sync again for any changes and availability status.
