Google announces exciting new plans for Pakistani Youtube users
Youtube has officially launched the offline video saving feature in Pakistan, which allows users to be able to watch videos without being connected to the Internet, provided they had them buffered.
Especially for cellphone Youtube users, this feature has been particularly popular in emerging countries where many face connectivity issues. Through this, a user can go to YouTube app (on Android as well as iOS), and save a video for later viewing. The video will be with them for 48 hours after downloading it.
“We are delighted to launch this new offline experience on YouTube with some of the top Pakistani players in entertainment. By making these popular videos available for temporary offline viewing, our partners will help fans connect more easily with their favorite content, while also helping bring more viewers to their videos,” said Tania Aidrus, Head of Business Development, Next Billion Users team at Google Asia Pacific.
The delightful news does not end here.
In its initiatives for expansion and growth, Google is bringing Youtube Partner Program to Pakistan. This will allow video creators in the country to make money for their original work.
By allowing Pakistanis to earn through their own content, the move provides an opportunity to the potential talent in the country to gain recognition and works to reduce unemployment rates.
According to Google, any Pakistani creator — even if they have only one original video — can become a “Partner” and start making money. These partners will be able to run ads against their videos. YouTube splits the revenue generated by those ads, and pays its partners.
