In Youtube they have been for a while without giving notice of changes to the platform, but they have met more than one at a time, although they are not related to each other.
On the one hand, expands from 16 to 125 countries where official download of videos is allowed when we have no connection, and on the other hand, creators using the new stories on YouTube will have a new advanced feature of Chrom that we have not seen in any other application so far.
List of countries that allow downloading videos
Although in the United States or in Europe we were accustomed to having great connection speeds and we can navigate more or less comfortably in mobility, the reality in other countries is that it is more complicated and if we put the transmission video between them becomes even more complicated.
That's why Google allowed the official application to download videos when the connectivity of a smartphone is bad or does not have directly.
The two best apps for downloading YouTube videos
Whether you're looking to download YouTube videos or play them off screen you have two good alternatives to the official app: SnapTube and TubeMate.
This is something that has already been allowed on a small list of sites, but now reaches many other countries although, as you can see in the list, countries where telecommunication networks are not very good.

Background change in YouTube stories
A few weeks ago, YouTube announced that to improve the communities within its platform, would implement the option to create stories ie short videos in vertical format that expire after 24 hours. One more copy than Snapchat invented and then popularized the worldwide Instagram.
But now it brings us a new option with which we can change the background when we record thanks to some algorithms that can cut our figure in real time.
The effect is the same as if we put a Chroma or a green cloth behind us and then add a scene digitally. But in this way it is much easier and accessible.
This is currently only available to creators who have stories turned on, but in the future Google wants this to be part of their overall augmented reality project .
