YouTube Go is a version intended for emerging markets where there are serious problems with connectivity and prices of data rates. In these countries is where this new application will be available.
Some of the new countries that YouTube Go can download today are Mexico, Brazil, Turkey, and Iraq, among others. Google has not offered the full list of countries.
YouTube Go is an application that only occupies about 9.4 MB of storage and allows users to discover the most popular videos, search and download their favorite videos to watch them later or share them with their friends through Bluetooth.
In Spain, the United States, France, Japan and Japan, the launch of this application is not expected, since Google wants to charge in these countries its subscription for downloading videos.
