When it comes to entertainment, nothing comes close to YouTube. YouTube has been around for ages now, and it became the hotspot for all the videos related to news, movies, music and much more in no time. YouTube is so big nowadays that users spend 3.25 billion hours a month on YouTube worldwide. If this sounds like a crazy figure, then you will be shocked to know that YouTube also has more than 10 thousand videos with more than 1 billion views mark. It isn’t only YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter are all filled with videos and content that people love to binge watch.
Given the popularity of these websites and many others, the one thing that you cannot do with them is download media. Yes, YouTube allows you to download videos from their mobile application, but that is downloaded and encrypted at the same time which means you cannot view the video file in any of the media players on your device rather than YouTube’s own application. Facebook offers something similar as you cannot view your saved video from a source other than Facebook’s application. Instagram doesn’t even offer such facility to do so. So, social media in today’s time is pretty restrictive. Well, if you own an Android device, you can have a way around it as you can download videos and music using InsTube.
InsTube is a 3rd party application which was once available on Google Play Store to download but not anymore as it has been taken off because of many copyright issues. Well, this is not what we are really interested in, are we? We have already done an article about How to download YouTube videos on PC, but if you are using your Android device, then you can still download videos and music files without doing a lot of things like rooting your device. Download and install InsTube to open a world of downloadable data right on your Android phone as InsTube allows you to download videos of up to full HD resolution from not only YouTube but also from other websites like Twitter, VEVO, Facebook, Instagram, AOL and many more. Not only that, it even lets you download music from Soundcloud which has one of the biggest databases of music on this planet.
InsTube is actually a browser as you can open any website you want to and additionally, it allows users to download media without actually switching to another application or website.
InsTube works great for Android users and for iOS users, there are also various downloader apps that work the same way as Instube for Android devices. So, no matter which OS you are using, you will always have some apps to download videos at minimum efforts.
To download InsTube Apk, all you need to do is open its official website from your Android device and then hit the download button.
To install the Apk, make sure that your Android device is set to ‘Install Application from unknown sources’ mode. If not, then head to the settings menu of your device and enter the security menu. Scroll down to the bottommost level where you will find the option saying ‘Install Applications from Unknown Sources.’ Toggle on the option, and you are all clear to install InsTube Apk.
The core purpose of this application was to be a web browser. When it was launched, it belonged to the category of web browsers, and later InsTube added the functionality to download videos on the go. Just like Google Chrome, you can open any website you would like to. InsTube works just as fine as Google Chrome, if not better.
The reason why it got taken off from the Google Play Store is because InsTube developers introduced the video download feature. You can still download the Apk from the internet in just a few clicks. Any video you play on the InsTube browser, it can be downloaded on your device with different resolutions and sizes.
For example, if you played a song or video on YouTube, and you wish to download the same, you can tap on the download button which is located at the bottom right corner of the screen. Tapping there will reveal different resolutions and sizes of the video, tap to download the one you fancy the most.
Luckily, InsTube also gives its users the ability to download music from SoundCloud. For those who don’t know about SoundCloud, it is a free music streaming service which has a huge database of the music of different genres. SoundCloud doesn’t allow its users to download music directly to their phone’s playlist because of the copyright issues, but InsTube lets users download music with ease. Play your favorite track on SoundCloud and tap on the same download button on the bottom right part of the screen. Then a menu will appear on the screen through which you will be able to select the quality of the music if multiple types are available and then hit the download button.
As the name suggests, you can use InsTube’s Private space feature to store and hide videos or music. This comes in handy if you want to hide certain videos or music which you are working on to make a project. To prevent those videos or files from getting stolen from you, you can store it in the Private folder which is password protected space. The first time when you will tap on the Private folder, you will be setting up the password as this will be your first time. Confirm the password you added by adding it again, and you are good to go.
In the recent times, the news has spread that Torrents are not safe and that is true, there are numerous torrent websites which can brick your PC or Android device in just a few seconds. Unlike those torrents, InsTube is completely safe to use and download content from the world of YouTube and other websites.
Many of us now use our smartphone more than our Desktop or Laptop so we have to have a solution to download videos without much problems. That’s where InsTube comes into picture. It is the best app to download videos and audios on your phone from YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc.
Since it is not available on Google Play, you can get its APK from its official website, and install on your phone to enjoy downloading.
