How to Download YouTube Videos to Android

Whenever you watch any video on YouTube, you probably want to download them so that you can watch them later offline. For a while, if you want to save YouTube videos to your Android mobile, you had to use third-party software that likely violated the YouTube terms of service.

YouTube Red is the only method for saving YouTube locally that doesn’t violate YouTube’s Terms of Service that cost $9.99 monthly service. But if you don’t want to spend money to download YouTube videos then what to do?
