VKontakte has introduced the function of saving videos directly in its application. They can be downloaded in advance, and viewed at any time without access to the Internet. The function works on smartphones and tablets on Android and iOS.
The introduction of the offline video viewing function was reported in the press service of VKontakte.
Social network users can download videos in advance to watch them offline in cases where online viewing is difficult. For example, on trips, on an airplane, in the country.
Videos are downloaded to devices quickly using VKontakte’s own technologies to speed up data transfer, the press service of the social network explained. The videos are downloaded in parts, so the download will not be affected by Internet outages.
The video can be downloaded in any of the available resolutions. After downloading, it will appear in the “Downloaded” section in “VK Video”. The function is available in the VKontakte applications on Android and iOS.
