One of the features of YouTube Premium, the monthly signature from the video platform of Google, is the ability to download videos without the need for third-party applications or tools.

The function was already available to subscribers by cell phone, and has now been announced in test phase for those who access YouTube through their browser. Check how to activate the feature.


How to download YouTube videos by browser
