Facebook’s latest feature for Android Applications lets you save videos for offline viewing

Facebook has come up with a new feature for Android app users to save videos while offline viewing. The video can be saved inside the app in the saved section, and is not accessible independently to users. Facebook will be showing a ‘Save video’ option in the drop down menu of a Facebook video post, this feature has the facility to save and view offline for as many number of times the user wishes to, the user also has the facility to delete as per his wish.

This feature left everybody wondering about the company’s main intention of providing this feature, where some guessed that this might be done to combat mobile data woes. The feature to save videos is currently showing up in versions 85 and 86 (beta) of the Facebook for Android app.
Facebook also said that it will start testing offline videos with a “small group of people” from July 11 in an email that was sent to page administrators for select media partners. The email also said that the test was supposed to be conducted in India, one of the markets where connectivity is a real issue, and also that publishers will have the ability to opt out of this trial.

Previously, Youtube had also allowed users to download videos for offline viewing, but users were required to re-sync the app in every 48 hours for verification such that to ensure that the app is not taken by the uploader or the website. It will be interesting to see if facebook will be applying such features in the future.
