Facebook has updated its android version which now allows users to save videos for offline viewing. The video is saved inside the app in the Saved section, and is not accessible independently to users.

The option is similar to YouTube’s offline feature, that lets users save some videos on the app to watch them later.

Facebook for Android is showing a ‘Save video’ option in the dropdown menu of a Facebook video post. The videos can be saved and viewed offline.

This offline video content will only be available on the Facebook app to protect copyrighted content, and to protect the copyright content, Facebook is also giving publishers the option of disabling download for their content. Only original videos posted on personal Facebook profiles and pages will get the offline video download option.

Videos can be watched offline once saved and removed at any time. Currently the “save” option is available in versions 85 and 86 (beta) of the app.

The update comes just weeks after the company CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the firm is working on bringing new features to Facebook Live at the recent Live Q&A session.
