We all know that one of the best benefits of YouTube Premium is the ability to download videos.

Now the video streaming platform is working on making offline video downloads possible on your desktop browser also.

Currently, YouTube is testing offline video downloads on desktop.

You too can try this, all you have to do is just head to the YouTube Labs page and look for the ‘Download videos from your browser’ button.

This test is active until October 19. Also, you will see a ‘Try it Out’ button if you are a YouTube Premium subscriber.

There you will find a new Download button between the current ‘Share’ and ‘Save’ buttons.

So what you can do is just open a YouTube video in the browser and click on ‘Download’ to watch it offline later.
