This feature is already available to YouTube Premium subscribers.

YouTube is testing a download button for its website, it is already available to YouTube Premium subscribers on mobile, direct downloads to PC, Mac and Chromebook through a specific YouTube download page on your browser. This means you won’t have to use third-party software or suspect sites.

It is currently being tested through the brand’s experimental new features section and similarly only available to YouTube Premium subscribers, but you only have until 19 October 2021 to try it.

Hopefully after the 19th, it’ll become apart of the normal YouTube experience. It’ll only work through Chromium browsers – so Google Chrome, Edge and Opera. 

Try it out on YouTube Premium for only £11.99 per month.
