10 Best Apps for Downloading YouTube Videos on Android

Written by Ananda Ganesha M

Nowadays, the range of content available on YouTube has grown tremendously, making it a popular platform for various audiences, whether it's a student who wants to find a lesson reference or a fan who are eager to watch a live performance of their favorite artist.

However, it becomes a problem when you have limited data or find yourself in an area without internet access. To solve this, being able to watch YouTube videos offline is essential, and the most effective method is to download them while connected to Wi-Fi.

Since the official YouTube app doesn't offer a free download feature, a number of Android app developers have stepped in to create a variety of free, user-friendly YouTube downloader apps.

Before you read further, you should know that using third-party apps to download YouTube videos is against YouTube's terms of service - which require users to stream videos directly from its servers.

1. KeepVid

KeepVid is a user-friendly Android app for downloading YouTube videos with ease. Simply copy the desired video link and paste it into the app. KeepVid also works to download videos of various formats such as MP3, M4A, MP4, MOV, and AVI.

Worried about storage? KeepVid allows you to save videos directly to your SD card, preserving your device's internal storage.

If you want to download even faster, use KeepVid's built-in browser, which instantly detects clicked video links. A single tap is all it takes to download your chosen video.
