YouTube has revealed plans in a blog for a new mobile feature which will allow users to save ads to watch offline later.

Set to launch in November, the tool will allow people to add videos to their device to watch for a short period when an Internet connection is unavailable.

Announcing the move, YouTube said: “Your fans’ ability to enjoy your videos no longer has to be interrupted by something as commonplace as a morning commute.

“This is part of our ongoing updates to give people more opportunities to enjoy videos and channels on YouTube mobile.”

This comes a month after YouTube updated its iPhone and Android apps.
