With the start of this month, Facebook have initiated the test for offline video feature in India. As per the reports, this particular feature is started to roll out for the Android users.

In this feature, a user can save videos in the application itself under the section, named as ‘Saved’. From a particular post you can now save your favorite video by just clicking on to ‘Save Video’ option from drop down menu. The Save option is available on the app of version 85 and 86 (Beta). The video is saved to the local copy of the application. It is not like saving an HTML5 video on Chorme and other browsers, here the saved copy is not available at user file system on the device.

The saved video can be viewed  offline at any time and as many times you want. The strategy lies here that you can’t download the videos and save it on your device because Facebook want the user to stick to their social media service and due to copyright issue.

Now, you save an article or video of your choice which you can’t view offline. But soon, the feature will be changed and upgraded. You can get the same feature with You Tube where you can watch your saved video without going online.

Only the videos posted on your personal Facebook profile or page can be viewed and downloaded offline. Like YouTube, you will be provided with an option whether the you want the viewer to download the video offline or not. Still, it is in mist that which country will get the feature.

At a Question & Answer session with CEO, Facebook said the company is working on new features of Facebook Live.
