You can download YouTube video or any image, audio, video, software directly to your Google Drive. To do this you’d require a Chrome extension called Save to Google Drive. This extension, developed by Google, allows users to save anything to their Google drive.
It’s easy to upload data to your Google Drive from your computer or smartphone. But you can also download files to your Google Drive directly from the internet. This includes downloading YouTube videos to Google drive, saving web pages, and even download a software and other files to Google Drive.
YouTube provides an option to make videos offline, but it’s only limited to YouTube app. Now, you’d say this doesn’t make the video offline. The story doesn’t end here.
