Y2mate is an Android application that provides access to an eponymous YouTube video downloader. This utility allows you to watch videos online and save content to your smartphone’s memory.
Similar to NewPipe, this utility is an alternative to the official YouTube app. It is possible to log in with your Google account without installing any additional plugins.
The interface of the app is quite similar to the mobile version of the YouTube website. You can get access to trending content, personal subscriptions, and a news feed with individual recommendations. The videos and channels are easy to find by name via the search bar.
You can leave comments, likes, and dislikes below the player. In addition, there is a safe mode to block inappropriate videos.
To download the content, you need to log in with your Google account. Then all you have to do is open the video and click on the red round button with a down-arrow icon.
The utility automatically generates a link to the video and redirects you to the official website of Y2mate. Here you can select the path and confirm the download.
It is possible to select the resolution of the video, find out the file size, and choose a saving path. There is an option to convert video to audio. In other words, the content can be downloaded in MP3 or M4A formats.
