But just in case you are worried about its usage, I assure you Tubemate is totally safe to use and does what it is intended for.
- Quick site links for easy access.
- Supports video formats and quality.
- Fast downloader.
- features some disturbing ads during usage.
- Not supported on playstore, so you have to manually update the app.
Why do People Download Youtube Videos?
We all know that youtube is the best video hub and the most popular site to watch videos online. But with our busy schedule and work environment, we don’t always have the opportunities to go online and watch these videos. Apart from the activities, there are times we find ourself out of data coverage and won’t be able to access the internet. Furthermore, you might just want to have your favorite videos saved to your device so that you can watch it anytime. That is why people look for opportunities and means to download videos from youtube.
What is Tubemate?
Tubemate is an android application for downloading youtube videos. It is probably the most popular Android app for downloading youtube videos. In short, not just youtube videos, but some other online video streaming sites. The app is very efficient and has got good reviews with recommendations from most of its users on the internet. The reason is probably due to its awesome features, which includes different video supports, fast downloads and much more.

How to Download and Install Tube Mate
Like I said earlier, the youtube downloader app is not available in the playstore, so you have to download from an external site. To download Tubemate, visit their official website and choose a mirror to download from. It is that easy. Also, the file size is very low and downloads are very fast.
To install Tubemate on your phone, you will most likely get an error saying ‘app can not be installed’ since it wasn’t downloaded from Playstore. To fix this, simply head to your phone settings, and under your device administration, select “allow installation of apps from other sources except Playstore”. After setting this, try reinstalling the TubeMate app.
How to Use TubeMate (Youtube Downloader)
Tubemate is very easy to use. On the home screen, there are quick video site links including Youtube. To download a video from youtube, simply click or search for the video you want to download on youtube from the app. A green download icon will appear at the bottom of the page, simply click on it.

Downloaded videos are automatically saved in your memory card device, but you can choose to move it to any designated folder in your file explorer.
Tubemate youtube downloader is very useful and comes in handy if you ever want to get your youtube videos on your palm. The primary downside is that the app (Tubemate) is not available on the Playstore, so to update the file you have to visit their official site to redownload the latest update. Besides that, Tubemate is a good app, that supports fast multiple downloads, and you can almost download any online videos from video sites besides youtube.
