YouTube Go is no longer deemed necessary: the app will be closed starting in August
Do you remember YouTube Go? It was the Android app designed and optimized for low-end devices. Well, in the past few days YouTube has announced that starting from August the app will be closed.
The reason for this decision is quite clear: “We’ve improved performance for entry-level devices or those involving YouTube on slower networks. We’re also creating additional user controls that will help reduce mobile data usage for viewers with limited data, so stay tuned for more updates. ! “.
Therefore, given the improvement in the specs of low-end devices and YouTube, a dedicated app is no longer required. Moreover, the decision had already been somewhat anticipated. In fact, since October 2021, YouTube Go has no longer received any updates.
