One of the apps for downloading videos most popular with Android phone users, Snaptube is not on the Play Store , the official app store for Google’s operating system Android. But still, it is possible to download it on other platforms and install it on your device, without the need for root or other techniques to execute privileged commands.
Available for free, the Snaptude app offers several features, with the main one being the tool to download videos from YouTube and other platforms. With it, you can download any content found on the Google service, to watch whenever you want, even when you are not connected to the internet, in different resolutions.
Download Music from YouTube
Downloading music with Snaptube is another possibility, using the video to MP3 converter present in it, which has the ability to extract the soundtrack from clips posted on YouTube and other supported services. The newly generated file can be played on any audio player.
However, we make it clear that installing apps outside the Play Store is not the most guaranteed practice in terms of security. That way, you need to do this at your own risk.
In addition to YouTube, Snaptube is compatible with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Dailymotion, Vine, 4shared, Vimeo, and Vevo, among other platforms. According to the company, the app can download videos on any of these services, offering the user the possibility to choose the resolution, format, and size.
The updated version of Snaptube brings some improvements and new tools. The app now comes with the intelligent night mode, which offers greater visual comfort when using the cell phone at night or in darker environments, when activated.
Another highlight is the floating window for multitasking. With this operating mode (picture-in-picture), the user can open other apps to read the news, send messages, send e-mails, and whatever else he wants, while the video continues to play on the adjustable floating screen.
Among Snaptube 2020 news, it is also worth mentioning the tab dedicated to displaying information about the health crisis caused by the new coronavirus. In this area, the user has access to the latest news about the COVID-19, confirmed cases, number of recovered and fatal cases, and other details.
How to download updated SnapTube
As Google doesn’t allow listing apps to download YouTube videos on the Play Store, the way out for those who want to rely on Snaptube features on their phone or tablet is to pick it up at alternative app stores or on the program’s official website.
But before downloading the APK file, it is necessary to release the download of applications obtained from alternative stores on your device – by default, the device only allows the installation of official sources, such as the Google Play Store.
To do so, go to the “Settings” menu, then tap “Security” and activate the “Unknown sources” option. By doing this, you will be able to install APKs from platforms other than the Play Store – remember to make sure the download source is safe and reliable.
Now, follow these steps to download and install Snaptube on your phone or tablet:
- Open your device’s browser and go to the official Snaptube website to download the latest stable APK version of the program. You can also find it in alternative app stores, such as Huawei AppGallery, Aptoide, uptodown, etc.
- Download on any of these platforms, giving the browser the authorization to install apps on the phone.
- Then, touch the downloaded APK file and follow the instructions to perform the installation.
- After the installation process is finished, the Snaptube 2020 is ready to be used.
