  • Google makes YouTube Go available globally

YouTube Go is an offline-first app which allows users to save a particular video to watch it offline or when they are on a slower network. The official YouTube TV Twitter account shared a tweet that all Apple TV users should check the App Store.

The app will join other OTT streaming services on Apple TV such as CBS All Access and Sling TV.

United States to Fine UBS for Spoofing
Spoofing involves placing bids to buy or offers to sell futures contracts with the intent to cancel them before execution. The CFTC said Deutsche Bank had agreed to pay $30m to civil charges in the case, covering a period from 2008 to 2014.

YouTube Go is officially rolling out to 130 countries across the world.

While YouTube Go is expanding to 130 more countries, those that have developed networks like the US, UK, Japan, South Korea, etc, will still not be included. You can now download, stream, and share videos in high quality. From there, downloaded videos can be shared amongst peers via a direct-to-device connection.

Three dead in California helicopter crash

Google's YouTube Go is now available in over 130 countries after debuting in India past year. YouTube Go just like its normal counterpart will also be alerting the user if and when their favourite Youtuber ends up uploading a new video.

Watching YouTube videos can eat up a lot of data, which is a big problem in countries whose internet infrastructure has not kept up with mobile video streaming. Further, it let the person share videos over the same platform via using Hotspot (similar to ShareIt or Xender). Earlier today, YouTube TV rolled out for Roku devices, another platform for which YouTube promised support previous year. It could also greatly complement a Netflix or Hulu subscription, especially for those aching to watch live TV channels. Google has since launched the app in 14 more countries, including Indonesia, Thailand and Nigeria, but today's expansion takes it to most developing markets across the globe. Now, after less than a day of the announcement, you can download the app on your Apple TV's tvOS platform.
