YouTube Go, a lightweight version of the full YouTube app designed for people in emerging countries, is expanding worldwide. With the Go app, users will be able to download YouTube videos and set them aside for offline viewing.
But distribution is key, too, with services vying to be accessible not only on the major mobile platforms, iOS and Android, but also on major OTT platforms like Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast and Xbox One. As of February, YouTube Go has been expanded to over 130 countries around the globe.

The signup option is not yet available on the TV apps. Earlier today, YouTube TV rolled out for Roku devices, another platform for which YouTube promised support previous year.
