How to Download YouTube Videos for Free

YouTube is regarded as the best online video streaming website in the world. Launched back in 2005, YouTube has become a big thing today and since it was bought by Google in 2006, each and every Android user gets a taste of it on their smartphone. There are a lot of videos that can be found on YouTube for free. Apart from videos, you can also find movies and a lot web series on YouTube. Sadly though, these movies are not for free and downloading stuff from YouTube (both website and app) is practically impossible. People are fed up with this because not everybody has internet access everywhere and because of that, online streaming is not possible. In fact, every time somebody streams a video on YouTube, data gets consumed (be it the same video one has been watching every day).

YouTube also introduced its own offline saving feature, but it was limited to very fewer videos. Also, the videos once ‘saved’ on the device cannot be shared with others. It is merely the link to a video that gets shared. People dislike this very much, but as they say, there are always alternatives to everything. Thus, here is a detailed list of some apps that allow you to download videos from YouTube (and many other websites) for free!
