YouTube mobile apps to offer offline viewing

Good news for your data allowances, YouTube will soon get an offline mode.

Or at least, its mobile apps will. The Android app already has the option of playing some cached videos, but you do have to be online. But this is definitely a step further.

On the YouTube Creators Blog, YouTube confirmed that the viewing of stored videos with no internet connection is coming soon to its mobile apps, that 'soon' being November, so a matter of weeks away really. There is a catch though, with offline videos available for a 'short time'.

That'a a bit vague - it doesn't say if that's in minutes, hours, days or longer. We should find out in due course. But this is essentially a good news story - YouTube in data blank spots? That's got to a bonus.
