YouTube Go launching in South Africa


YouTube Go will launch in South Africa soon, Google has revealed.

It is designed to be an offline-first way to access YouTube videos, and launched in beta in India earlier this year.

It was designed to:

Give video recommendations tailored to users’ preferences.

Improve the experience of watching videos on a slower network.

Provide control over data usage, offering choice and transparency for streaming or saving videos.

Share videos with friends.

YouTube Go exited beta earlier this week, and is currently only available in India and Indonesia.

Users can also download the app from APKMirror.

Supposedly, the "Top 100 Food Cities" in the world - an index based off various metrics like number of restaurants, affordability, diversity (i.e. not just hundreds of McDonalds and KFC), critic reviews, local reviews etc. Anyway not sure how meaningful it is to compare a tiny city like San Sebastian to giants like NYC and Tokyo. Or to compare say, Cape Town, where only a small proportion of the local population and tourists can actually afford to go to nice restaurants, to Sydney where the majority can afford to.

Thank you. It is an interesting ranking. Almost like the liveability one. I often think Melbourne is the (3rd) World’s Most Liveable City.

Soon we might have a thread for "International Brands Leaving South Africa".

Chevrolet and Citroën already have.

The EFF are saying that they will not stop protesting and intimidating H&M staff until H&M as a brand has left South Africa. They will not allow the shops to reopen.

must be about 2000 jobs tied into H&M - gee, thanks Julius! - meanwhile a boycott or the social media fallout on its own would have sufficed!

Well Zuma will be gone soon and EFF needs some way to stay relevant. ANC already stole their proposal for free education, and unfortunately for both the DA and EFF Ramaphosa is an extremely credible leader.

The EFF are damn stupid. They are causing exactly what they hate. Allowing some dumb H&M marketing exec's decisions in Sweden, a guy probably making millions, decide on the livelihoods of 2000 struggling South African retail workers. That is blatantly anti-blue-collar, anti-South African, anti-the-people. I do agree that H&M corporate needs to be brought to task for such marketing ignorance, and they have learned something: they apppointed a permanent Diversity Manager. If the EFF feel so compelled, engage the Diversity Manager of H&M and give input on how to brand clothes that celebrate Africans. But to destroy 2000 jobs... Ai shame man!

And it is selective outrage about racism too. Both EFF and ANC members have said extremely racist things towards Asians (Chinese in particular) without any particular consequence. I can understand (not that it is acceptable either) vitriol towards whites in SA, but towards Asians?

H&M is a global company with global marketing campaigns. Of course this is a mistake on their part. But people in SA need to also understand the world does not particularly care about our race/ethnicity issues. Pretty much every country on earth has its own race issues. How much does the average South African know about Dalits in India or Burakumin in Japan or Negritos in SE Asia? It is rather arrogant to assume South African racial dialogue and mores should apply to the whole world... (a similar criticism also applies to US race issues being treated as global issues)
