If you use YouTube mobile app, you might know that it has a video download option. Now, the popular YouTube app feature has landed on the website’s desktop version. You can download videos from YouTube to watch them offline.

However, the feature is still in the testing phase and is now available to YouTube Premium users. Also, it’s available for a limited time. If the download button receives a good response on the desktop version, it might come out as a full-fledged feature.

According to the reports from Android Police, the feature is available only in two countries – France and India. One report from The Verge claims that the experimental part is also available in the United States but is not available on every Premium account.

YouTube has also released a statement that mentioned that the feature is exclusively available on Chrome, Edge, and Opera browsers. You must use these three web browsers to find the new feature.
