If you are using an Android phone or tablet, it’s easy to watch YouTube videos using YouTube app for android or from web browser. But in some cases you may need to have videos available offline when you don’t have data connection or out of Wi-Fi range! Or even having good data connection, you may want to save your favorite videos on your phone storage! You have that right! Rather it’s much easier to watch if videos are stored on storage. It makes access them faster.

TubeMate Youtube Downloader

I have seen many apps to download YouTube videos on Android phone. Among them, the app I mostly liked is TubeMate. You can’t find it in Google Play Store as Google will not permit such apps. You just simply hit m.tubemate.net to download this app.

Using TubeMate to Download YouTube Videos to Android Phone

1. First, you have to enable the installation of apps from unknown sources(If you already have this enabled, go to second step). To enable this, Tap Settings > Security > Unknown sources. Tap Ok to the warning.
