With YouTube Go app it’s reduces the amount of data you have to burn just to watch that video. It’s targeted at users with poor network coverage and those who want to conserve data while streaming videos on YouTube.

YouTube Go has been designed to take into account the challenges faced by YouTube users in countries like Nigeria, such as data cost and connectivity. With YouTube Go, we are making it possible for everyone in Nigeria to be able to discover videos that they love, regardless of their network status or data consumption preferences.”
With more Nigerians coming online every year, and most of them only using their mobiles for internet access, we are working hard to make products that are tailored to Nigerians’ specific needs.
