Along with a Material Design refresh and search filters, the latest update for YouTube’s Android app allows users in Indian, Indonesian and Filipino markets to save videos to their devices to watch offline.

The new feature is available for select content including movies, music videos, trailers and more, so that users in areas where high-speed mobile data connections aren’t easily accessible can enjoy buffer-free video.
