download videos is possible in more countries, but still not in France!

Since 2014, YouTube has been downloading videos for later viewing in offline mode. This feature extends to more countries. But France is still not one of the lucky ones elected. Youtube is by far the most viewed video platform in the world. Yet it is essential to have access to the internet to enjoy it. Most of the time this is the case especially on our 4G network. But we do not have permanent access to a network that is powerful enough to watch video. In the subway, on the highway, in the train or in the plane for example, the network is often even completely indiponible.
To meet the needs of users Google added in 2014 an offline mode to Youtube. The principle is simple: we download videos from Youtube to watch later even when there is more connection. As a first step, this functionality was reserved for South-East Asian countries. Then the application Youtube Go (a lightened version for emerging countries) was endowed.Youtube: the download of videos is available in new countries
Obviously, this feature is appreciated because according to Android Police, it gradually extends to new countries. Among the first served are Lebanon or Iraq. Who from France? Still nothing in France. Moreover, the United States, Japan and all of Western Europe can not benefit either.
Nothing says besides that we will be able to profit some day. For the moment, only countries with poorly developed network infrastructures can benefit from downloading Youtube videos. In France, if the coverage of the population in 4G approaches 100%, the coverage of the territory is much worse. Enough to convince Google to launch the offline mode in France? For the moment, the answer is no. It will therefore be necessary to continue to download the Youtube videos with the good old methods.
