One of the features of Netflix is that it is smart enough to automatically download videos for offline viewing. This downloads videos for TV shows that you’re currently watching, so that you can keep watching them and accessing them even if you don’t have an internet connection. Now it looks like YouTube wants to do something similar.

According to a report from Android Police, it appears that YouTube is testing out a new feature for YouTube Premium subscribers where they are giving users the option of downloading videos automatically on behalf of the user. According to the description, it seems that these will be based on the favorite topics chosen by the user where users will be able to choose from various channels and subjects.

If this sounds familiar, it is because just last month, YouTube rolled out a similar feature for YouTube Music, where the streaming service will automatically download up to 500 songs that it thinks you like. This seems to be a growing trend in which these services are trying to make our access to their content easier, especially when we don’t have internet and still want to watch our videos or listen to music.

As we said, this seems to be only available to YouTube Premium subscribers so if you don’t have a subscription, then you won’t be able to use it.
