There are different ways to download a video from YouTube on your smartphone, but Tubemate has always been the best option for downloading videos and audio from YouTube. You are not able to find the Tubemate app on the Play Store or AppStore of your smartphone. Since Tubemate enables anyone to get videos from Google-owned YouTube, the app was removed from the Play Store. You can find an apk file of the app on Google and install it on your smartphone.

No news of major problems or personal security breaches from Tubemate has surfaced anywhere to date. While downloading the Tubemate app, there is no hassle of downloading other unwanted apps or facing pop-up ads. There is no news of it distributing any kind of malware as well.

After you download and install Tubemate on your smartphone, downloading videos and audio are really easy and quick as well. Follow these steps

Step 1: Open your desired video on YouTube.

Step 2: Click the ‘share’ button and select ‘Tubemate’. This will take you to the Tubemate app.

Step 3: Click the download button. Then, you see a variety of options for download. You can choose the desired resolution and format for your video.

Step 4: After selecting the resolution and format, press the ‘download’ button again. Here you can edit the song, artist, and album name. After you edit the names, you can press the ‘OK’ button at the bottom. Your video will be downloaded and saved on your device.

This is the easiest way to download videos on your smartphone from YouTube. However, you will need to download an additional app to convert your videos into audio which is available on Google Play Store or AppStore.

There are some other mobile apps as well through which you can download videos from YouTube. Apps like Videoder and Snaptube are pretty good as well. Like Tubemate, they are not available on Play Store or AppStore and you have to download an apk file.
