Statistics show that TubeMate’s 750 million downloads beats YouTube Go regarding popularity, and there is no surprise here. We have put the two apps against each other and the balance is definitely in TubeMate’s favor.
Why does TubeMate surpass YouTube Go, considering a ?
YouTube Go was announced in Delhi to capture the attention of the Indian market – where internet connectivity and data connection are quite an issue.
The features offered by YouTube Go focus on limited data and slow connection, allowing the user to control the data. You can download videos on the SD card or phone, you can share videos and needs less storage space than the regular YouTube app. YouTube Go is available for free in Google Play Store.
An interesting fact is that Google only launched the app for countries that have limited access to mobile data, so don’t expect to see the app in the US, Canada, Japan, South Korea, France, England or Germany.
TubeMate YouTube Downloader
TubeMate YouTube Downloader lets you download videos from YouTube and only works on Android devices. With this app, you can browse and download videos from the YouTube app. TubeMate allows users to pause and resume a download process from where you left it. You can choose the video resolution preferred and download videos with resolutions at 240p up to 1080p.
A great thing about TubeMate is that you can download videos from Vimeo or Dailymotion and has a section where you can track all the videos downloaded or in the process of being downloaded.
What might annoy you is that there are some YouTube videos you cannot download. TubeMate uses an MP3 media converter, allowing the download of high-definition videos. The app comes with some crashes and issues too, and you cannot use the app when you have 2G.
Nonetheless, TubeMate is more popular when it comes to being a video downloader – and it is available globally, unlike its Google rival. YouTube Go has the upper hand regarding stability and working with a slow internet connection.
