How to download YouTube Shorts video for offline viewing 

YouTube Short Download: YouTube Short is a Google search engine short-form video service. The service was recently added to live streaming to allow new creators to film and upload skits and comedy dances for 15 seconds or less. That said, the YouTube Shorts download feature for offline viewing is not yet supported. Eat data every time you stream content to the platform. However, there is a way to download YouTube Shorts videos. Although downloading YouTube Shorts through third-party apps and websites is completely free, it is illegal. Similar to downloading YouTube videos, downloading short videos reduce monetization for content creators. However, if you SHOULD, this is how you can download YouTube video downloads for mobile viewing and offline viewing.

What is YouTube Shorts?

Currently, the service is available in beta form in India and other countries for users with Android mobile phones and tablets. It appears in the YouTube app, next to the home page. YouTube Shorts may be added to iPhone and iPad soon. However, it may not be available for PC and laptop users. As stated above, YouTube Shorts supports videos that are 15 seconds or less. Its features include a multi-segment camera to string together multiple video clips, the option to record with music from a song library, speed controls, and a timer and countdown to keep you informed.

YouTube offers a traditional way to download regular videos that also works for Shortcuts. Although such videos can be viewed offline, they are only open within the YouTube app. That is, they are not downloaded to the gallery of your phone. Therefore, you cannot view or share them without YouTube.

To download Shortcuts for offline viewing, follow these steps:

  1. Open the shortcut video you want to download.

  1. Touch the Videos tab and find the shortcut video you want to download. Tap the three-dot icon next to the video and select Download Video.

Another way to open the short video like a normal video is to click the music icon below the short video. Then tap on the arrow icon next to the video title.

The video will open like normal YouTube videos. Hit the Download button below the video. This method will be useful if the video uses the original video. Therefore, you will find only one video under the music tag.

To view downloaded videos, open the YouTube app and click the Library tab below. Then click Download and you will find the videos.
