YouTube got its new ability to show video download recommendations that were initially available in selected markets. Though the offline play feature was supported way back in 2014 now, the new YouTube recommended videos feature is being rolled out to a broader audience on both the Android and iOS platforms.

The latest update will allow YouTube users to see a list of recommended content on the Download page below any videos they have already downloaded for offline view. Earlier this month, reports had surfaced suggesting that the video-sharing platform was testing new “recommended downloads.”

The screenshots are then rumored to show blue bubbles just underneath the video player showing more specific video recommendations that are now being rolled out to a wider audience on both the Android and iOS platforms.

According to the document, these videos won’t consume any data unless a user chooses to download them, and users will be free to opt out of the recommendations by going to Settings, then Backgrounds and Downloads.

If your phone happens to be offline when you want to grab YouTube recommended videos, the next time the user connects to a Wi-Fi network, your video will be automatically downloaded.

The new feature can be easily disabled if you don’t want to receive download recommendations. But it is bad news for users in India and the US, as YouTube is yet to bring the update here.
