YouTube is set to end services on its application dubbed ‘YouTube Go’ from August this year and transit fully to its main app with improved features.
The added features will see performance improvements and user controls, such as Data Savings mode for limiting mobile data usage.
“We are announcing that YouTube Go will no longer be available beginning August. To access YouTube, we recommend that YouTube Go users install the main YouTube app or visit youtube.com in their browsers. In comparison with YouTube Go, the main YouTube app provides a better overall user experience as well as offers features that aren’t available on YouTube Go that many have asked for – such as the ability to comment, post, create content, and use dark theme,” said Meaghan, TeamYoutube.
“Since then, YouTube has invested in improvements to the main YouTube app that make it perform better in these environments, while also delivering a better user experience which is inclusive of our entire community. Specifically, we have improved performance for entry-level devices or those that watch YouTube on slower networks. We’re also building out additional user controls that help to decrease mobile data usage for viewers with limited data – so stay tuned for more updates!” they said in a communication to YouTube Go users.
