YouTube is the most popular video streaming App with over 1.5+ Billion downloads on Android. YouTube is a great source of knowledge and entertainment catering to millions of useful videos. YT also introduced the popular offline feature which lets you download the videos on your App itself. This feature is very popular and helps to save videos locally on the App.
Google doesn’t support direct YouTube video download to the gallery. Also, no such apps which promote YouTube Video download are available on Google Play Store as it violates the core policy of YT. But there are many 3rd party apps which help you download the videos/audio (mp3) from YouTube directly to your Android phone storage.
